The AMA recently announced a partnership with the Regenstrief Institute that it says will ensure more medical students and medical trainees gain real-world experience using electronic health records during their training.
“Many residents and young physicians are coming out of medical school with gaps in their ability to practice in the modern health system,” Susan Skochelak, MD, AMA vice president for medical education, said in a press release. “Too often, students enter residency training without the ability to effectively and efficiently work with EHRs, even though they are one of the primary tools physicians use in everyday practice. That is why we have been working with some of the nation’s leading medical schools to develop bold, innovative ways to improve physician training.”
