Scottish Universities - VIRTUAL MEDICAL SCHOOL - Feasability Study - 29/10/2001
Health Minister, Susan Deacon, said: "The potential benefits of e-learning are great. I am delighted that the Scottish Higher Education Funding Council and Scotland's medical schools are leading the way in exploring this huge potential. The sharing of international medical knowledge, the breaking down of geographical barriers to learning, and more on- the-job learning are just some of the exciting possibilities. But we don't just want to use new technology to train tomorrow's health professionals, important as that is. We are also committed to improving the skills of the staff of today. That's why next week I will announce a broad package of new learning tools and opportunities for NHS staff here in Scotland."
