Use of Curriculum Mapping Tools to Identify Learning Opportunities and Deficiencies II: Knowledge Map

Presented by Joshua Charles Denny on March 7, 2013 at 12:00 pm

This session will cover use of informatics tools in preclinical and clinical education. KnowledgeMap is a natural language processing (NLP)-based curriculum management system that allows faculty to search uploaded content. We will discuss how curriculum can be tracked and revised based on NLP technology, as well as briefly discuss copyright concerns for the continuously-available curriculum. We will then discuss a clinical portfolio from, among other sources, all the clinical notes written by trainees in the electronic health record. We have used this to facilitate mentor-mentee feedback, to evaluate and track exposures to common clinical problems using NLP, and to send targeted interventions to students. Finally, we will discuss how these systems how allowed us to measure required work-hour changes to residency training.
