Studying medical technology usually helps students develop the skills necessary to operate complex equipment used to acquire information in the diagnosis of patients in various healthcare facilities. Many schools around the world offer programs in this field.
Across the Atlantic, the discussion about online courses and their potential to restructure higher education has been raging for some time. Courses are structured as weekly online conferences; communication with the course tutor and other learners takes place in a virtual learning environment. The online courses are intended to fit around your calendar; you access the course whenever it is suitable for you.
Explore key concepts in data analytics, systems theory, and information governance, and apply them to healthcare decision-making.
This online course explores the intersection of data analytics and healthcare. By the end of the course, you will know how to apply common frameworks and key concepts in data analytics, systems theory, and information governance.
The course starts by examining how healthcare data is collected and stored. It then goes on to explore how information management methods, machine learning, and data visualization are used in data analysis.
You will learn to leverage data analysis tools and techniques to inform better decision-making in healthcare.

The Internet of Things (IoT) includes many new digital health technologies, from apps to wearable devices to home sensors - devices that are expected to revolutionize healthcare in the near future. But when will they become truly useful and usable for those with the most at stake: older adults with multiple medical problems? This is just one of the questions we will tackle on this course.
Get an introduction to geriatric care
Better technology can often come from greater understanding. On this course you’ll learn about how older adults and clinicians manage health problems and health pain points, and how to check up-front for the real problems seniors need technological help solving....

With the Higher Degree Training Cycle in Prosthetic Audiology, you will study the Workplace Training module in the most recognized work centers in Spain: (GN Resound, RV Alfa, GAES, Alain Afflelou) and abroad (Vivason, Coscas, Entendre , Audissimo, Alain Afflelou, Amplifon).
In addition, thanks to a fundamentally practical methodology, from the first course you will learn in the Workshop of Audio-prosthetic Products and in the Electronics Workshop of the European Professional Center. In the Audiology Room you will have all the necessary instruments to perform a complete analysis of a patient's hearing health and the necessary programming. And in the Electroacoustic Room, you will have all those programs necessary for the study of the components of a hearing aid, as well as in the learning of its analysis and repair....

Systematic Reviews of Prognostic Research
The number of primary studies evaluating prognostic factors and models is rising per day. Alike for therapies and diagnostic tests, critically summarizing and analyzing the evidence form prognostic studies in a systematic review and meta-analysis is beneficial for healthcare professionals seeking the best evidence. Reviews of prognostic studies are much more challenging because of more variation in questions & designs, specific sources of bias & variation, and more complex statistical meta-analytical models.
Several advances regarding the design, critical appraisal and statistical analysis in systematic reviews of prognostic studies, have recently been made. In this online medical course for researchers, we discuss and practice how to define your review questions, how to search the literature, how to critically assess the methodological quality of primary prognostic studies, and which statistical methods to use for meta-analyses of the results of primary prognostic studies. The course consists of plenary presentations, small-group discussions, and computer exercises....
The current e-learning programme focuses on the basic applications of nanotechnology in Health Sciences, in clinical and research level.
Nanotechnology is a multidisciplinary field and its use in the area of Health Sciences has led to innovative applications in diagnosis and treatment of living beings as well as in agricultural process. The current e-learning programme focuses on the basic applications of nanotechnology in Health Sciences, in clinical and research level.
The present programme provides a detailed description concerning the types of nanotools used in Health Sciences, the mechanism of their action, the route and the behaviour of each nanotool inside a biological system.
Recent advances in nanotechnology offer the potential for early detection of several diseases as well increased therapeutic efficacy. In this context, the programme gives a thorough overview of nanoparticles current applications in diagnosis (including MRI, CT, PET, SPECT and Biophotonic modalities), therapy (including radiotherapy, treatment with radionuclides, photodynamic and photothermal therapy) and theranostics....

Approaches for targeted drug delivery and advanced nanotherapeutics
Nanomedicine is a combination of nanotechnology and medicine. It provides new direction in medical diagnosis, monitoring and treatment at the level of single molecules or molecular assemblies at the “nano” scale. Additionally, continuing improvement in the pharmacological and therapeutic properties of drugs is driving the revolution in novel drug delivery systems.
This unique and innovating online course platform focuses mainly on the applications of nanotechnology to drug delivery and highlights several areas of opportunity where current and emerging nanotechnologies could enable novel classes of therapeutics....
