Join us Feb. 16, 12-1pm ET, as the MedBiquitous Community Connection 2021 webinar season kicks off with "A Discussion with MedBiquitous Luminary Rosalyn Scott, MD." A nationally recognized expert in the implementation of simulation technologies for both professional and patient education, Dr. Scott has held key faculty positions in both colleges of medicine and engineering. She is currently consulting with Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science as they develop an independent medical education program in their College of Medicine.

Dr. Scott’s webinar will focus on the influence MedBiquitous has had on her development and design of simulation-based education for both the healthcare team and patients. As a prelude to her personal story and in honor of Black History month, Dr. Scott will introduce the collective memory of the healing arts among African-Americans, which led her to become the first female African-American cardiothoracic surgeon. Dr. Scott will describe her strategies to develop the first regional simulation program in the VA, which included mobile, virtual and center-based activities targeting basic training, professional development and patient education. She will conclude with a vision for how MedBiquitous standards could lead to a digital ecosystem supporting simulation-based health professions education designed to achieve and maintain competence and provide an adaptive curriculum for the individual learner.

This episode builds upon last year's premiere webinar episode featuring MedBiquitous Luminary Valerie Smothers, “2020 Vision: The History and Future of MedBiquitous,” the upcoming conversation with Dr. Scott continues the exploration of key community members who promote excellence in data standards and educational technology and influence the landscape of health professions education.
