OSHEAN Enables Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University to Live-Stream Public Health Grand Rounds
Public Health Grand Rounds is a collaborative program produced by the Rhode Island Department of Health and the Office of Continuing Medical Education (CME) at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University. The program enables medical professionals to further their education and training, as well as maintain or achieve important certifications essential to career development, with presentations that focus on a critical issue of importance in the rapidly changing health care system. OSHEAN enables far-reaching engagement within the medical community by live-streaming Public Health Grand Rounds sessions via the OSHEAN Video Commons Service, allowing interested practitioners to participate even if they cannot attend in person.
Sullivan had been working with OSHEAN’s video services specialist Jim Carr on recording lectures for re-broadcasting to members of the continuing medical education community. With the creation of the Public Health Grand Rounds and the support of the Rhode Island Department of Health, Sullivan realized the potential of utilizing the OSHEAN network to attract a larger audience to each session while also providing valuable educational resources to busy medical professionals, many of whom could not regularly attend seminars and other events due to schedule complications. OSHEAN now makes it possible to watch these sessions live or on-demand, providing maximum flexibility and seamless online streaming.
