Season 3 Episode 6: The Learning Hospital with Jim Gordon

July 21, 2022

How do we train and transform our teams and our systems for better patient care in the 21st century? What’s the role of simulation, of interprofessional learning, and of integrating education with workforce development in large healthcare institutions?

In this conversation, Jim Gordon shares his approach to being Chief Learning Officer at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH). He talks about the challenges and opportunities of connecting pockets of educational excellence in large organisations, and of meaningfully bringing interprofessional teams together to train and learn together.

The conversation was prompted by the announcement of a $50million philanthropic gift to support these endeavours at MGH, including a Learning Academy, and a Learning Hospital – a physical re-creation of multiple departments in the hospital to allow cross department team training.

Exciting times for Jim and his team, and opportunities to learn from others doing great work on building teams and systems for 21st century healthcare.
