GlobalMed®—the worldwide leader in real-time healthcare delivery systems—is announcing the expansion of a premier learning center in the heart of the Scottsdale Airpark business community that acknowledges the importance of and need for substantive online training and education opportunities.

In 2011, GlobalMed launched TeleMed U™ as a center for training practitioners in the use of telemedicine, including proper communication techniques with remote providers and best practices in conducting examinations using telemedicine hardware and software systems.

On Tuesday, March 19, a live webcast of a Continuing Medical Education (CME) conference, hosted by Mountain States Genetics Foundation (MSGF), marked the introduction of TeleMed U™’s expansion as an international center for education and training for medical professionals.

From providing a state-of-the-art location for medical institutions to offer CME to offering e-learning for training in the use of telemedicine and other technology-based medical applications, TeleMed U™ is poised to become a  top-notch facility offering certified educational programming and accommodations.

“Rapid advancements in the medical field are leading to a greater need for quality education for practitioners. Recognizing this need, we are expanding TeleMed U™ to provide more streamlined communications and accessibility to this education and training,” stated Joel E. Barthelemy, GlobalMed Founder and Managing Director. “Our vision is for this Institute to provide that ease of access to superior training and education through leveraging the latest in interactive video and audio technologies that utilize virtual environment scenarios to help enhance the learning process.”

The day-long conference focused on the “22q Deletion Syndrome,” a disorder caused by the deletion of a small piece of chromosome 22 that causes heart defects, cleft palates, rheumatoid arthritis and even learning disabilities in children that can later lead to mental illness. Geneticists from around the United States and Canada presented their findings and research on 22q and engaged in a panel discussion with physicians from Phoenix Children’s Hospital, the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, as well as guests who include patients and caregivers.

GlobalMed and MSGF have partnered to provide the CME conference from the new eighteen-hundred-square-foot TeleMed U™ facility, which houses interactive, state-of-the-art video and audio capabilities within a large studio space. A 12-foot green screen can be used to build various scenes and backgrounds for filming and editing, as well as an area for large audiences and group seating.

Susan Bryan, president of the foundation, stated: “Our goal is continue to make our accredited genetics education programs accessible to all professional and consumer audiences. The support of GlobalMed and their impressive new education and training facility has proven invaluable in helping us rapidly reach that goal.”
