The Social Media & Informatics Committee is looking for individuals that would like to develop solutions that can make the life of the program director, program coordinator, and residents easier.  Do you have a technical solution to make screening applications easier, gathering information for the CCC meetings, or increasing scholarly activity? If so please join the Informatics Committee and share your expertise.

The IT Committee has now been combined with the Social Media and Informatics Committee. 

The goal of the IT sub-committee is to maximize CORDs investment in digital platforms by:

  • Making recommendations on ways to improve the website’s use and organization
  • Keeping abreast of new technology that could help further CORDs mission and making recommendations to the CORD BOD on implementation
  • Developing new platforms that could help the lives of CORD members
    • Program Dashboard
    • WebAds scholarly activity checker
    • Educational Platform (e.g. Moodle or Blackboard) that could allow cross-program educational curriculum
  • Innovating ways that informatics can improve the education of our residents, or make the administration of a program less time consuming
