Abstract

A plan for integration of medical informatics into all phases of medical education at the University of Minnesota Medical School is described. Objectives were developed that focus on teaching skills related to: (1) accessing, retrieving, evaluating, and managing medical information; (2) appropriate utilization of computer-assisted instruction lessons; (3) electronic communication with fellow students and medical faculty; and (4) fostering a lifelong commitment to effective use of computers to solve clinical problems. Surveys assessed the status of computer expertise among faculty and entering students. The results of these surveys, lessons learned from this experience, and implications for the future of computers in medical education are discussed.
