Abstract

Objective: This article describes two complementary technology systems used in academic medicine to 1) improve the quality of learning and teaching, and 2) describe the barriers and obstacles encountered in implementing these systems. Method: The literature was integrated with in-depth, case-based experience with technology related to student progression, faculty promotion and school administration. Results: Academic medicine concerns itself with data and outcomes. Psychiatrists need to attend to their learning and teaching paths as much as to developing the knowledge and skills to manage their patients. Conclusions: Technology enables us to track, manage, and report these data with increasing ease, making transparency and accuracy more achievable.
