We will continue to use today’s, and tomorrow’s, incredible next-generation technology to move our students and faculty from a classroom environment to an experiential environment. There, we can further blend technology with the human touch. We use these tools to educate more thoroughly and efficiently, to better serve our future patients’ needs.
