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.”
