Academy and NBME Speak at Global Innovation Conference

April 2017

Karen Burdick, GRS Academy’s Senior Director of Curriculum Development, and Brownie Anderson, Vice President of International Programs at the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME), recently co-facilitated a presentation at the Innovative Strategies for Developing the Future Healthcare Workforce conference in Beijing, China.

The presentation, entitled “Using Technology to Provide Evidence-Based Healthcare Education across China,” introduced attendees to the ways in which GRS Academy is leveraging a scalable, state-of-the-art learning management system to help train a large and dispersed Chinese workforce in Western, evidence-based approaches to nursing, rehabilitation, and health coaching. In addition, the presentation provided insights into the NBME’s efforts and process for building an international health coaching certification examination in partnership with GRS Academy.

The conference, sponsored by Innovations in Global Health Professions Education, was attended by approximately 100 prominent healthcare and education leaders from Singapore, Hong Kong, China, Canada, United Kingdom, Qatar, and the United States.
