Medical Middleware Open Working Group

Time 05/05/02 01:00PM-03:00PM

Session Abstract

Under the auspices and direction of the Internet2 Health Sciences Initiative, and in cooperation with the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), a working group has been formed that will leverage and extend the work already done in enabling enterprise directories to support these services in the higher education community, with an eye toward the particular environment and requirements unique to the medical education sector. The name of this working group is meduPerson. Important new content-sharing tools, such as the Shibboleth project underway within Internet2, will allow unparalleled secure access to medical resources but will require a widely adopted standard objectclass, which is the goal of the meduPerson project.
