uConnect for Medical Practicum Communications
Kevin Wong, Carmen Wong and Paul Lam
Medical students undergoing practicum are in need of a very flexible communication tool for them to constantly connect with their supervisors/ teachers for various consultation as well as teaching and learning purposes. The uConnect is a tool recently developed to facilitate these small-group communications on the Programme level. Whatsapp-like groups are centrally created to support communications between students and their supervisors. Communications are also facilitated between teachers/students with the programme coordinator and administrators.
