The Digital MEdIC Team
Our innovative team works with collaborators to develop high-quality, media-rich learning content that is delivered free-of-cost to healthcare professionals worldwide.
Dr. Prober has been involved in medical education throughout his career. He has directed a number of undergraduate and graduate student courses in the classroom and at the bedside, served as Associate Chair for Education for the Department of Pediatrics, and lectured locally, nationally, and internationally on infectious diseases and medical education. He served as Senior Associate Dean for Medical Education at Stanford from 2007-2017 and in that role he worked diligently to create a more diverse and supportive educational environment for our students and graduate medical trainees. Some of the initiatives developed under his leadership included: the highly successful Educators-4-CARE (E4C) program, the Office of Medical Student Wellness, expansion of combined degree programs, the creation of the Stanford Society for Physician Scholars for residents and fellows, the use of Multi-Mini Interviews as part of our medical school admissions process, and the creation of our Teaching and Mentoring Academy.
In addition to being a national advocate for enhancing the richness of interactions between faculty and students in medical education, Charles has advocated for a more measured approach to the use of national examination scores in the selection of residents, working with the leadership of the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) and the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC). Prober is the recipient of multiple teaching awards, including the 2016 Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation Award for Outstanding and Innovative Contributions to Medical Education.
The Digital MEdIC Student Ambassadors are Stanford medical students who are paired with faculty members to assist in the planning, design, creation, and evaluation of online courses. Using their experience as medical students, they work closely with the instructional design team to develop interactive and adaptive lessons focused on learner-centered design.
The Digital MEdIC Global Teams consist of in-country personnel who work with our Stanford team and regional collaborators to implement and evaluate the Digital MEdIC initiative locally.
