Course Description
Academic leaders from distinguished universities — currently the University of South Florida, Duke, The University of Texas, M. D. Anderson Cancer Center, University of Florida, Johns Hopkins University, University of Michigan, and The Medical College of Georgia — are launching a ground-breaking Leadership Symposium on Digital Media in Health Care. This Leadership Symposium is part of a national conversation on how to leverage technology, like iTunesU and mobile devices, to increase access to health curriculum. Participants will learn best practices and explore the future of mobile, digital learning for health professionals, students, and patients.

Today’s students, health professionals, and patients use their computers and mobile devices to interface with the world. Now you can tap into that digital lifestyle to keep students and health professionals every bit as engaged with your courses, and to offer the general public greater access to wellness information. Using distribution channels like iTunes U lets you easily expand your curriculum, delivering audio and video content to deepen the learning experience.


Target Audience
University and Health Institution leaders including Deans, Department Chairs, Faculty, CEOs, IT Professionals, Health Professionals and Educators who work with students and patients in all health professions.
