Many Shoreland subscribers are required to evaluate medical capabilities for a variety of reasons. This may involve the capabilities of an individual hospital, a defined geographical area (from city to country), or a health care system. These courses provide the background information and practical experience necessary to effectively assess medical facilities and systems of care. Site visits to local hospitals with supervised facility assessments are incorporated into the courses.
Shoreland's subject matter experts are able to develop other training programs on demand when a subscriber has a specific requirement.
