Videos: Sometimes reading about a procedure isn’t enough. You need to actually see it done to understand it.

Lectures: Over 40 PowerPoint lectures, discussing  important operational medicine issues.

Distance Learning: Free e-Learning courses for web training in operational medicine and nursing subjects.

Training: Education and training is available from a variety of resources, both public and private.
