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.
