EPIC Module 5
Information Technology

Learning about information technology in community practice often may need to be a collaborative process, with students teaching faculty certain technical skills and faculty helping students learn how to evaluate and use technology resources appropriately. In this module, the preceptor will investigate the six primary areas of information technology academic health centers are focusing on. They will also consider their own skills and the opportunities available in the practice for student learning in this topic. Preceptors then may develop teaching strategies and learning activities.
