Sapienza, an Example of Innovative Didactic to Train Tomorrow's Doctors

The University has been cited in the journal Forward as a promoter of a new Teaching Method: with innovative instruments like the AccessMedicine platform -that collects free material-, Sapienza spread the technology innovation in both the study courses of the medical area and the professionalising study programmes.

The innovative core curriculum of the Faculty of Medicine of the University was cited by the magazine Forward as a leading example for the training of new "digitized" doctors.

The journal deals in particular with the issues of precision medicine, big data and automatic learning techniques in health and health, themes at the center of an unprecedented strong academic, industrial and media interest.

"A context in which it becomes essential to transfer the technological innovation also in study courses as Medicine and professionalizing study courses, to train the doctors of tomorrow", explains in the article by Forward Sebastiano Filetti, former Dean of the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry and promoter of the AccessMedicine project.

Moving in the direction of the major international universities, Sapienza looks at this sector with great attention and with well-defined programs, preparing to meet these new needs and to redesign its degree courses in an innovative way.

The AccessMedicine platform is a collection of free manuals available to more than 25,000 students of Medical courses, thanks to the agreement with the American publisher McGraw-Hill.

The idea behind the project is to prepare, starting from the acquired library heritage, didactic supports that are actual virtual books, to be "decomposed" and "recomposed", integrated and constantly updated, for a more "smart" teaching modality personalized to the type of students.

In addition to textbooks, periodically updated, the portal contains guidelines, standardized clinical cases, multimedia material, calculators useful for the daily practice of the patient, a pharmaceutical handbook and educational tools.
