“What electric motor has done to enhance human muscle power in 20th Century, the “Chip” will do for human brain power in 21st Century. Let us welcome it.” (KRS, Doctors’ Computer Forum, 1987, cited in NTTC Bulletin, 2000). My belief for the last three decades is a reality today. Let us try to harness the power of the ubiquitous ‘smart chip’ to enhance the curricular delivery and assessment of health professions education.
