“Doctors going digital: How to future-proof skills”

20 November 2020, 9.00-12.00, via livestream

Joint conference of the Standing Committee of European Doctors and the German Medical Association

What digital skills and abilities does the physician need in light of the increasing prevalence of telemedicine apps or the use of artificial intelligence in medicine? To tie in with Germany’s presidency of the Council of the European Union 2020, the physicians’ organisations that comprise the Standing Committee of European Doctors (CPME) and the German Medical Association, along with an audience of experts, would like to address the question of what digital skills the physician must have in order to be able to safely make use of the possibilities offered by new technology in a way that benefits the patient. Related to this is also the question of how to impart the corresponding skills and abilities when faced with medical degree courses that are already condensed or in the case of doctors who are already practising medicine.
