Online medical training is now available online at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) National Institutes for Health-NIH-NCI-HRP, the NIH National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCAI), the National Institute on Aging (NIA) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI).
According to the latest update by the NIA on online medical education (NME), online training has now been fully integrated with NMEs.NMEs are the first health care system to make it mandatory for all healthcare professionals to be certified as qualified and registered nurses.
The NME system has been implemented in nearly 1,500 hospitals in the US, including more than 70% of US hospitals.
The system provides free online training for all NME staff members and NME trainees.
The training includes a 24-hour online clinic and online support and troubleshooting sessions, as well as a weekly phone conference with NGE staff.
The National Institutes on Aging, NIH and NCI-National Center for Clinical & Translational Science have also recently rolled out online medical technology training for the healthcare professionals.
In an interview to The Hindu, Dr. Suresh Jain, Deputy Director of the NME at the NIH, said that the NGEs online training is a first step towards providing free online health training for healthcare professionals in the United States.
The system is now fully integrated and is in the process of making it mandatory.
The NIH has also created a webinar where NME trainers can get the latest news on the NHE, including how to access the NPEs website.
Currently, there are no plans to expand the NCEs online medical curriculum in India, Jain said.
“We do have an initiative in place to expand our online medical system to other countries, but the current online training programme is not available in other countries.
We hope to do so in the future,” he said.
A few of the online training modules available on the NIH website include a three-day training for registered nurses, and an online training in the areas of general practice and nursing.
The NME training will be available to healthcare professionals for free for at least three years from the date of the training.
The online NME courses will provide the healthcare professional with the knowledge needed to become a trained health care professional.
NME is the second-largest industry in India after insurance.
