August 27, 2013 –Mint Medical Education, which opened a new training facility in downtown San Francisco in May, is now introducing anywhere, anytime online Medical Training and Education programs through its new Learning Management System. View the Company’s “highlight reel” introducing a “fresh approach to medical education online” here:

The Company is leveraging its years of experience in imaging services and innovation in the booming field of online training to give physicians and allied health professionals the opportunity to learn ultrasound both online and in-person.

“With education and training of all types moving online, we saw an important gap in bringing best practices in online education to help medical professionals stay on top of emerging applications of ultrasound and other medical technologies.” explains Brad Hummel, Mint Medical CEO. So now the company is introducing medical education and training online.

The company’s deep expertise spans across imaging services, but core services areas include Vascular Ultrasound, and Ultrasound for Ob/Gyn. So the first online courses and programs will include a Case Study Review system for Vascular Ultrasound, and an Introduction to Ob/Gyn Ultrasound course. And as online training on technology is a focus area for the company, the first online training videos include a set of training videos on specific ultrasound machines. These videos from the Company’s “Technology Training Center” introduce medical professionals to the basic knobology, applications and first patient scans on a new machine.

“With so many medical professionals facing the challenge of applications of ultrasound technology in new areas of their practice, we felt that providing online technology and machine training was important,” continued Mr. Hummel. “We were thrilled to kick off our new Technology Training Center online with a few key training videos introducing the Philips HD15 and ClearVue 650, and applications of these machines in Ob/Gyn – still the heart of ultrasound technology applications”.
