Rocky Vista to offer digital health track starting in January

Posted

Students at Rocky Vista University College of Osteopathic Medicine interested in digital health will soon have the opportunity to join the digital health track, a new specialized educational program that will be the first of its kind offered at an osteopathic medical school.

Available at both the Parker and southern Utah campuses starting in January 2020, the digital health track will provide students with the ability to effectively solve complex health care challenges through the use of technology.

The track will incorporate training in artificial intelligence, remote monitoring, ethics in use and application of technology, telemedicine and telehealth, population health analytics, social media in medicine, nanotechnology and much more.

In addition to a pioneering curriculum, students will be required to complete two digital-related externships during their clinical years.

“This two-semester track is for students who have a strong desire to learn about the cutting edge world of delivering medicine digitally,” said Camille Z. Bentley, DO, MPH, FACOFP, chair of the department of tracks and special programs.

Applications for the track will open in October. Up to 12 students from each campus will be selected to participate.
