Rocky Vista welcomes first digital health students

New track teaches students how to integrate technology into health care

Posted

Students at Rocky Vista University's College of Osteopathic Medicine with an interest in digital health are now enrolled in the new digital health track.

The advent of digital health — the integration of technology into healthcare to improve a patient's wellbeing — has created a need for physicians who are knowledgeable about its emerging tools.

The digital health track will allow students to effectively solve complex health care challenges through the use of technology and applications. The track will incorporate training in artificial intelligence, remote monitoring, ethics in use and application of technology, telemedicine and telehealth, population health analytics, social media in medicine, and nanotechnology. Students will also be required to complete two digital-related externships during their clinical years.

The digital health track welcomed 11 students at the Colorado location and eight students at the southern Utah location Jan. 28.
