Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

This article highlights technology innovations in psychiatric and medical education, including applications from other fields.

METHOD:

The authors review the literature and poll educators and informatics faculty for novel programs relevant to psychiatric education.

RESULTS:

The introduction of new technologies requires skill at implementation and evaluation to assess the pros and cons. There is a significant body of literature regarding virtual reality and simulation, including assessment of outcomes, but other innovations are not well studied.

CONCLUSIONS:

Innovations, like other uses of technology, require collaboration between parties and integration within the educational framework of an institution.
