Achievements


 The spread of the internet around the world in recent years has increased telemedicine conferences, as a means of sharing information among medical institutions in various formats, including visual, audio and presented materials. Teleconferences reduces time and costs related to travel and enables people to access the latest information, including cutting-edge medicine from overseas and updates on emerging infectious diseases. It also encourages learning among medical staffs and contributes in enhancing English language skills, as needs for such skills continue to grow. At the same time, technical support of networks and audio-visual equipment is essential. However, many institutions are challenged with lack of qualified engineers and disparity of technical environments.

 TEMDEC provides training programs for engineers engaged in telemedicine conferences to improve quality and further development of telemedicine conferences, and accepts participants from universities and hospitals around the world.




  ◆ APAN Medical Working Group Telemedicine Engineering Training (APAN-TET) / Short-term program

 APAN Medical Working Group Telemedicine Engineering Training (APAN-TET) is a short-term program that aims to train local engineers who can provide technical support for telemedicine conferences. This program is carried out at the Medical Working Group in Asia Pacific Advanced Network (APAN) meeting held twice per year.
