#GRIPE19 Plenary Speaker Highlights: Dr. Hooman Rashidi

The GRIPE 2019 Annual Winter Meeting is just around the corner, and we would like you to get to know some of our keynote speakers! We have two plenary speakers this year, and we hope you enjoy their presentations.

Hooman RashidiDr. Rashidi is a board certified Hematopathologist with an extensive background in informatics and medical education. His bioinformatics background dates back to his graduate school years in the 90s (prior to entering medical school). That experience and expertise enabled me to co-author several popular textbooks in bioinformatics along with now being actively involved in developing several machine learning tools and platforms that him and his colleagues are using for their respective studies. In addition he has also been very successful in publishing several very popular digital tools (including several Apps) in the medical education/hematology arena that are now used worldwide. His background and experiences gives him a great perspective of how to convey this knowledge to those interested in the technology arena.
 Integrating Technology Tools in Medical Education
The use of technology and digital platforms in medical education is an integral part of many programs and courses. The misconception amongst many is that one needs to be a technology expert/ computer programmer to be able to build and incorporate such tools in their particular area of interest/coursework. There are many tools made easily accessible and available to the average user that could help build and incorporate such tools in various settings. This session will discuss such possibilities and help in introducing such tools for an audience with a wide background in this technology discipline.

Generation Z as Medical Students: What Can We Expect?
Presented by Geoff Talmon, MD
January 25, 2019 at 9:00am Eastern Time

Geoff TalmonDr. Talmon is a Professor in the Department of Pathology an Microbiology at the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) in Omaha, NE, specializing in gastrointestinal, renal, liver, and transplant pathology. He completed his residency in anatomic and clinical pathology at UNMC, a fellowship in surgical pathology and the Mayo Clinic, and am currently obtaining a Master of Education in Health Professions from Johns Hopkins University. Dr. Talmon serves as the Department’s Vice Chair of Medical Education, program director for the pathology residency program, director of the UNMC Interprofessional Academy of Educators, program co-chair for UNMC Master in Health Professions Teaching and Technology Program, and co-leader of the preclinical phase of the medical school curriculum.

Generation Z as Medical Students: What Can We Expect?
While the characteristics of Millennial learners and their differences from older educators have been widely discussed with regard to medical education, a new generation of learners will soon be entering health education: Generation Z. Although they share many similarities to their Millennial predecessors, their perspectives and preferences may have an impact on how Gen Z students approach medical training with implications for instruction and beyond. This session will review the basics of the generations active in medical education today with particular focus on the characteristics of Generation Z students.

Following this session, audience members will be able to:

  • Review characteristics of the 5 generations currently active in medical education
  • Differentiate characteristics of Millennial and Generation Z learners
  • Discuss the impact of Generation Z students’ preferences and tendencies on medical education
  • Develop potential strategies for better engaging Generation Z health professions students
