Digital Interactive Education and Educational Resources for Enhancing the Training of Health Professional: 20 Years of Experience in the Discipline of Telemedicine in the Pathology Department at the University of São Paulo Medical School (1997–2017)
Telecommunication and computing have evolved at a rapid pace, changing how people interact with each other through mobile devices with social networks, instant messaging, and so on. Considering that use of these technologies will be increasingly present in our daily life, it is imperative that education and health care keep up with the evolution of digital society by innovating and updating current approaches. Since its creation in 1997, FMUSP’s Telemedicine Discipline (DTM) has been researching, developing, and implanting health education models and resources that transcend Brazil’s geographical barriers. DTM has been a reference in structuring research networks and technological centers through videoconference infrastructure, connecting disparate locations across the country with the concept of connected education, and sharing educational and laboratory infrastructures. DTM explores new health education methodologies, called Metacognitive Interactive Education 4.0 model, integrated with an educational platform with exclusive resources for health teaching, such as a digital microscopy room, directed dynamic communication in computer graphics, and 3D printing (Virtual Human Project), Digital Objects, Doubts Voters, and Opinion Voters (Design Thinking), webmeeting rooms, videos in 360°, etc.
