A shorter URL for the above link: <http://tinyurl.com/24sapja>In a world where Canada will spend billions to computerize all health records by 2016, it seems almost simple minded to ask if Canadian medical schools have begun training their students in how to create, understand, and make best use of that data.
Simple minded in theory, but when a quartet of researchers at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia surveyed 16 of Canadas 17 medical schools, they discovered that none have included what is formally known as health informatics into their core curriculum. And while three schools reported offering health informatics as an elective course, it was unclear whether any students were actually enrolled in these courses.
One school had formed an informatics advisory committee in 2007 aimed at looking into how to integrate the subject into its undergraduate curriculum, but three years later, its work was still in developmental stages.
Its like the motorcar has just been invented and medical educators are imagining that instead of doctors needing to learn how to drive, doctors are going to have chauffeurs to do the driving for them, says Dr. Brett Taylor, associate professor of emergency medicine, pediatrics and medical education at Dalhousie.
Even more perplexing was the groups discovery that other nations were actively integrating informatics into core curricula. A recent study in the US found that 52% of pre-clerkship and 32% of clerkship students received medical informatics training, says Taylor, who presented the studys initial findings at the National Institutes of Health Informatics first annual conference in Waterloo, Ontario, in April.
