Summer opportunities in mobile health technology research at UCSF

Tuesday, February 14, 2012 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Think you might be interested in working on a mobile health technology project at UCSF over the summer?  Perhaps in patient-oriented research or medical education tools through a Dean's or Curriculum Ambassadors Grant?

On Tuesday, February 14th at noon in S-163 UCSF Assistant Director of Telemedicine Jeff Jorgenson and two faculty members (one in Neurology at the VA, the other is a Hospitalist at Moffit) will be holding a small informal discussion to highlight potential opportunities for working on mobile health projects over the summer.  This could mean projects that aim to harness the growing power and pervasiveness of mobile computing in an effort to improve health outcomes and/or lower barriers to accessing health knowledge.

They'll be highlighting projects in cellphone-based health interventions, tele-conferencing based health care, health IT, and other health 2.0 technologies like social media, patient communities, etc.
