VAMED’s in-class training courses aim to strengthen the know-how of healthcare professionals at all levels, from basic to management, and for all professional groups: doctors, nurses, and physiotherapists, as well as managers, technicians, and other non-clinical staff. Courses are taught by VAMED experts or by experts from its international partner network. Training courses can be provided in all areas of healthcare and can have e-Learning (online) components that complement face-to-face training. More information on the training courses VAMED Education and Training offers can be found in our Training Catalogue in English, French, Portuguese or Russian.
The following courses are examples of training courses often requested by clients.
The topics listed for each course aim to provide an overall picture of what can be taught; however, the exact topics, as well as the duration of the course, will be determined during an on-the-ground assessment that takes place before the training project starts.
