Does Age Influence Educational Format Preference and Technology Adoption? Findings of a Survey of US Physicians

Age is presumed to play a major role in physicians’ educational preferences. However, few data available to confirm such an impact. To address this gap, we prospectively surveyed our physician membership to understand how age impacts format and technology preferences. We found age can be a predictor of physician preferences regarding education and technology. Health educators should take the age of the target audience into account when designing physician education.
