The vast and ever-changing requirements of clinical practice strain our capacity to initially learn and then stay up to date on core knowledge and skills. Computer-intelligent systems offer the possibility of individually-optimized, “just-in-time” refresher practice, much as a personal coach might individualize training in athletics or music. In this session we will review the theoretical and empirical bases for such systems, share in-progress findings from the implementation and investigation of intelligent study systems at several medical education programs, and discuss practical implications and challenges to overcome in applying such systems in health professions education more broadly.
