The digital transformation of health care represents an immense challenge modern health care systems are facing. For a transition securing the highest standards of health care, the workforce needs to integrate the newest technologies and acquire new sets of skills. Addressing this issue, EMSA developed a toolkit to empower future healthcare professionals to implement digital health skills into medical education. In this masterclass we will discuss the importance of keeping the health professions curriculum up-to-date with emerging technologies, to pinpoint needs of future health professionals and reflect on the role of students and educators in transforming the medical curriculum.
