Together we can fund access to equitable healthcare around the world. Why the VAW Global Telehealth Program is important and unique?
We have designed these courses to be much like a course in continuing education. As you continue in your educational and professional careers, continuing education will become a part of how you maintain your license and stay current in the ever evolving and rapidly changing discipline of healthcare.
“I learned quite a lot through this course.
It opened my eyes to how healthcare is distributed, the cultural differences in patient-doctor relationships, limitations of the patients and doctors, how COVID-19 is handled, and what telehealth is really like”.
– Tal Saadia, George Mason University
