TORONTO, Canada – The Association of Vascular and Interventional Radiographers (AVIR) has formed a partnership with Medlantis, a digital eLearning company for medical and sales professionals worldwide. The partnership means AVIR, with a membership of over seven hundred within the United States, will give Medlantis ability to capture and distribute AVIR video content internationally. This will include lecture content, as well as annual and regional meetings.
Radiographers, such as those in AVIR, have to take Continuing Education (CE) credits, which are accredited by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). However the time and money it takes to travel to the events in order to receive accreditation, has always slowed down the education and accreditation pipeline. Using Medlantis’ digital platform will ensure CE accredited courses will be available on any and all mobile devices. This has the added benefit, for example, of a user pausing a course and returning to it at a later time.
This agreement expands Medlantis’ accredited Continuing Medical Education (CME) for physicians to include CE accredited courses for technologists. Canon Medical Systems USA, Inc, one of Medlantis’ largest customers can now offer CE course in over 50 US hospitals, expected to grow to 150 US hospitals by the end of 2017.
Medlantis has launched 89 CE accredited courses for all AVIR technologists in the United States, and is expected to launch 50 CE accredited courses each year through AVIR, as the partnership grows.
