Medical Education and the Lambda Grid : Medical Education and the Lambda Grid Parvati Dev, PhD Stanford University SUMMIT Lab Overview : Overview Problems faced by medical education Technology as one solution Where is networking going in medical education Advanced Distributed Learning Exponential growth of medical knowledge : Exponential growth of medical knowledge MD degree still 4 years One year internship 2-5 years specialization Maybe a fellowship Some specialties disappearing : Some specialties disappearing Students are multichannel, multitasking : Students are multichannel, multitasking Overview : Overview Problems faced by medical education Technology as one solution Where is networking going in medical education Why technology ? : Why technology ? Content Virtual hospital CDs, Internet, Databases Simulations Books, Lectures Practice Precertified on procedure See one, do one, teach one Some technologies : Some technologies Rich media and video with “presence” “Feeling” at a distance - haptics Simulation of medical situations Games and multiplayer gaming Rich mediaandvisualization : Rich mediaandvisualization Networked resources Worldwide Visualizable, palpable Anatomy to molecules Video for remote learning : Video for remote learning Collaboration - Net Meeting Video for remote learning : Video for remote learning Access Grid Video for remote learning : Video for remote learning Yesterday’s video from Keio University Haptic imagery - “feeling” virtual objects : Haptic imagery - “feeling” virtual objects At a distance Low latency Transmit force, field, model Immersive simulation based learning ? : Used when training in the real situation is Unsafe Too Expensive Inefficient Non-standardized Unavailable elsewhere Immersive simulation based learning ? Team based learning - with manikin : Team based learning - with manikin Patient under anesthesia lapses into cardiac arrest Virtual Emergency Room : Virtual Emergency Room Multiple users (players) One 3D space Overview : Overview Problems faced by medical education Technology as one solution Where is networking going in medical education Networking and medical education : Networking and medical education Next Generation Internet Supported the applications above Gigabit, QoS, multicast Scalable Information Infrastructure Applications adapt to network “weather” Grid computing and grid storage Lambda grids “Infinite” bandwidth Ready to move to this level Requirements for education : Requirements for education Must support collaboration via IP? Across lambdas? Multicast??? Allow application level query of network parameters Allow application to adapt if necessary Must be easily supported on campus Global lambda : Global lambda What is wrong with this picture? Global Medical Education : Global Medical Education Public health information needs worldwide network - SARS epidemic Similarly, medical education needs a global view: Global Development Learning Network (GDLN - World Bank) MedNET (India) MedNET India : MedNET India Broadband network Link medical schools, hospitals, public health centers For Tele-education Telehealth Bio-informatics Research Grid MedNET India : MedNET India Supercomputing in India Research Channel Internet2 Fiber donor IEEAF Health sciences In conclusion : In conclusion Medical education is a fertile area for grid computing and lambda grid applications http://summit.stanford.edu/ : http://summit.stanford.edu/ Funded by: NLM, NHLBI, PATH, Wallenberg Fdn, Yamazaki-Yang Fdn,and others Parvati@stanford.edu
