Mint Medical Education Launches its First Online ObGyn Ultrasound Training Course; Company Merging Best Practices in Online Education and Continuing Medical Education

October 15, 2013 – Mint Medical Education today announced the launch of its first Online Continuing Medical Education activity in ObGyn Ultrasound. The Introduction to ObGyn Ultrasound online course combines recorded lecture and interactive discussion between physicians and sonographers, with live patient scanning and case study review. The course is designed for Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, Nurse Midwives, Physician Assistants, Sonographers and Perinatal Registered Nurses, and is designated for a maximum of 6.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.

The Introduction to ObGyn Ultrasound online course is the first online CME activity in ObGyn Ultrasound to introduce the Company’s “fresh approach to medical education and training online”. The Company is offering a 15% discount on registration for the full course in October.

“We are a Company with a long history, and a deep expertise in medical imaging. We know how advances in technology can drive improved patient care. However, we haven’t seen those technological advances applied toward training for medical professionals in the online CME marketplace.” Said Brad Hummell – CEO of Mint Medical. “This new online course in ObGyn Ultrasound is a model for online medical education. We present information in a fresh and compelling way, and allow students to digest information as they see fit. Dr. Anthony Filly is a leading expert in the field of ObGyn Ultrasound, and we are thrilled to present his lessons online to the ObGyn medical community.”

Last month, Mint Medical released its first online CME activity, with a case study review system presenting over 500 live patient ultrasound exams in vascular ultrasound. The Introduction to ObGyn Ultrasound online activity is also available through the Company’s new Learning Management System, but presents medical training using a combination of video production and case review. The Company will continue to innovate in online education for medical professionals. “There is a huge need for real educational value delivered in a convenient and compelling format. We will keep working to provide that value, so that our customers in the medical community can leverage technology to improve care to their patients.” concluded Mr. Hummel.
