Dr. Peter Horneffer is the Executive Dean of the All American Institute of Medical Sciences (AAIMS) in Jamaica, which is an innovative new medical school which leverages technology to help build medical practitioner capacity in that underserved country. He also serves as Director of Medical Education at Lecturio.

He obtained his MD from Johns Hopkins where he stayed to complete his residency in cardio-thoracic surgery. In mid career he agreed to help create a new approach to delivering medical education to the underserved, and ultimately led the first school to be fully accredited using Internet-based resources and a hybrid approach to educate medical students simultaneously on multiple continents.

He still has a limited practice of heart surgery in Maryland, but spends most of his time teaching courses on Learning Science and hosts globally attended webinars for medical faculty, sharing effective ways to teach and learn.

Good quality material easily explained

Good quality material easily explained. I really liked how dr.Horneffer smiles after giving the right answer. This small gesture makes me feel involved in the conversation. To make lectures even better add links to the sources. Since we are learning evidence-based medical education techniques that may make a good impression.
