Abstract

Computer-based learning has been developed for the beginning medical student and the experienced practitioner, for the lay person and the medical expert.

Information technologies are providing new opportunities for linking medical schools around the world for sharing computer-based learning materials. In this chapter, the authors present examples of actual programs that are being used to support medical education for each of these categories of learners.
