Design the Medical Textbook of the Future

You’re invited!

Open.Michigan, the Medical School’s Learning Resources Center Multimedia Development team and Dr. Maya Hammoud, Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology invite you to join us to design a medical digital textbook of the future. Students, faculty and staff input are welcome and valued. Bring your perspective, expertise, and interests to shaping this project as we address the educational opportunities of the 21st century. We will host two design sessions with the goal of transforming this idea into a reality.

What would a medical digital textbook of the future look like? What kinds of information would it have? How would you interact with it? When would you use it?

We will be providing dinner at both design sessions! Please RSVP if you are able to attend one or both sessions:

Design Session I:
January 13, 5:30-8 pm
Identify opportunities and begin designing the textbook.
Design Session II:
January 20, 5:30-8pm
Focus on prototyping the textbook and brainstorming ways to scale the project.


Both sessions will take place at the Learning Resource Center, 3rd floor of the Taubman Medical Library, Room 3901 (1135 E. Catherine Street):
