Medical Student Participation in EHRs

In two studies published this month by the journal Teaching and Learning in Medicine, the Alliance for Clinical Education described the importance of medical student participation in the electronic health record (EHR).  The Alliance, made up of education leaders from a broad range of medical specialties, was formed to enhance clinical instruction of medical students.  “Currently only 64 percent of medical school programs allow students any use of EHRs, and of those only two-thirds allowed students to write notes with in the electronic record,” says Dr. Maya M. Hammoud, the study’s lead author and associate professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Michigan Medical School.
