Environmental Scan of e-Health in Canadian Undergraduate Medical Curriculum

An environmental scan to identify what exists, the trends, and the potential gaps across Canada in medical curricula, core competencies, policies and other activities related to e-health in undergraduate medical education in Canadian faculties of medicine was undertaken and published in 2012. The environmental scan includes: a literature review; key informant interviews with undergraduate deans of medical education and one e-health or informatics expert at each of the faculties of medicine; and an online survey of informaticians, faculty members who are integrating e-health in their programs, staff/faculty at the undergraduate curriculum office, and other staff members such as informatics coordinators at the 17 faculties of medicine in Canada
