New book on medical education and the MEFANET network

A new book from the Facta Medica publishing house, entitled „Computer Applications, Systems and Networks for Medical Education“, was released in November 2014. Dr. Daniel Schwarz and Assoc. Prof. Ladislav Dušek (both from IBA MU) are editors of the book.


As the title indicates, the book deals with modern technologies in the education of medical students, physicians, and other health care professionals. The first part of the book describes the current status of e-learning in medical education, online publishing, development of interactive clinical scenarios and simulations, and recently very popular gamification of the education. Pillars of the MEFANET network, their design, development, implementation and use within the network are introduced as well. The book therefore reflects the results of mutual cooperation among Czech and Slovak medical faculties in the field of modern forms of education, which was initiated more than 8 years ago, and is indeed unique on the European scale.

The book is available online at the MEFANET website.
