Emerging Technology for Education
It is a pleasure to welcome you to the University of Medicine and Dentistry
of New Jersey (UMDNJ)-School of Health Related Professions (SHRP) online
program site. The dynamic changes in our society, particularly those in the
worlds of health care and technology provide excellent opportunities and
equally formidable challenges. At UMDNJ we have been working on these
challenges and opportunities with an eye to converging them into
opportunities for the American allied health working professional.
We recognize that teaching and learning can no longer be seat centered only.
It is obvious that you as working professionals are locality bound. We want
to bring you to us by bringing us to you! One of the marvels of technology
is that it allows us to do just that, come to you. We have designed a number
of WEB-based programs and courses which may well be of interest to you. We
will continue to develop further programs and courses which will allow you
to set your goals and to meet them in surroundings most conducive to your
I welcome you, then, to UMDNJ and in this new world of distance teaching and
learning. We hope you will welcome UMDNJ into your homes, workplaces,
libraries or local colleges.
