Abstract

Medicine is a changing field and so is the art of teaching medicine. To cope up with technology and science is a major challenge. We all have been trained by conventional classroom teaching, which includes seminars, demonstrations, and bedside clinics but should now be aware of e-learning, blended learning, use of smartphones and tablets, webinars, telemedicine, and tele-education. There is lots of medical content in social media (Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn), which is very easy to access. This chapter gives an overview of how electronics have changed the way we practice, keep our records, learn, and teach.
