During the first two years of medical school, students will attend educational presentations in the form of lectures, panel discussions, and demonstrations. College of Medicine faculty that are experts in their field of research study or clinical practice give these presentations. Occasionally, presentations are provided by faculty from other colleges, such as the College of Public Health, or healthcare professions, such as nutrition, physical therapy, and healthcare administration.
The Office of Medical Education records the vast majority of lectures using a video capture system (Echo360). The capture technology records the presentation and syncs with the presenter's audio. This technology allows students to review material prior to exams, bookmark areas of the recording they may want to return to for further study, or return to in the future to refresh their understanding of the material.
Blackboard is the educational material repository in which content for the courses is housed. Beginning in 2017 Canvas Learning Management System will start to be used as Blackboard is phased out.
