Expanding learning borders

Stanford opened the Center for Health Education this September to provide online training to health care workers, medical students and citizens around the globe. 

Charles Prober, MD, former senior associate dean for medical education and a pioneer in advancing health education through digital training, will direct the center, a collaboration of the School of Medicine and the Office of the Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning.

The center will help “extend advances in understanding achieved by our world-class faculty to learners far beyond our campus boundaries,” says the medical school’s dean, Lloyd Minor, MD.
