Media Library; A Program to Increase Hospital-Based Learning Opportunities for Physicians.
Garman, Louise W.
In response to the expressed needs of physicians in general practice, especially those in smaller hospitals and rural areas, for improved opportunities in continuing education, the Department of Postgraduate Medicine and Health Professions Education at the University of Michigan Medical Center developed the Media Library. A series of short synchronized slide-tape programs, Media Library deals with medical problems seen frequently by physicians in general or family practice. Because of the encouraging results of field trials, the department committed itself to a major production effort, and in the fall of 1972 Media Library program subscriptions were offered to hospitals. Subscribers report usage for both individual and group study by physicians, medical students, and physicians' assistants. A syllabus has been developed for each of the 18 programs consisting of a statement of objectives, a reading reference list, a summary of the program, and a post test with answers. Media Library has been accredited for continuing medical education hours by several medical associations. Feedback is regularly solicited from subscribers as to usage, suggested program topics, and system improvement. (Author/SL)
