Partnerships in Medical Education: An Exploration of Library Service Models for Postgraduate Medicine at Macquarie University
Simons, Mary
Australian Academic & Research Libraries, v39 n3 p171-180 Sep 2008
Macquarie University's new medical school, The Australian School of Advanced Medicine (ASAM), is developing a postgraduate program that incorporates a partnership with Macquarie University Library. The curriculum encompasses contemporary models of competency-based assessment, teamwork and lifelong learning that are integrated with research and patient care. This exploratory paper shows how ASAM differs from other medical schools in ways that will necessitate an innovative response from the Library. Results of a Library survey identified key online services and the importance of integrating information skills training into ASAM's curriculum. The ensuing discussion demonstrates how ASAM and the Library can share current technologies and educational principles to facilitate lifelong learning, health care and collaboration.
