The Medical Education Technology Committee (METC) is charged to investigate new educational technologies, to advise SOM faculty on uses of educational technology, and to advocate for the use of new technologies to improve our delivery of curricula. The committee will research, discuss, and make recommendations concerning ideas and requests for new technologies. It will take requests from SOM faculty for assistance with identifying, planning, and deploying the use of new educational technologies, and will advocate for necessary financial support for these innovations.
The founding chair of METC will be an educator from MD program, and the role will rotate biennially among the 3 main educational institutions: the MD program, Allied Health, and the graduate programs. We have tried to have as much representation as possible from as many departments and backgrounds as possible.
Each meeting will have various notes recorded by its members before they are presented to, and finalized by, the Committee Chairperson. After being finalized, the meeting notes are posted to this website.
The Medical Education Technology Committee has a number of resources specific to their committee: general committee information, documents specific to METC, and links to other teaching and technology resources.
