Find out how our healthcare programmes are contributing to training and continuing professional development globally.
Holland and Tanzania
- Seven universities in Holland are using e-LA as an anaesthesia training resource. e-LA is being used alongside traditional teaching methods and providing an invaluable revision aid for professional exams for the European diploma and Dutch anaesthesia qualification.
- In a separate programme, one of these universities, the Radboud University Medical Center, mentors and funds access to e-LA for anaesthesia residents at the Kilimanjaro Christian Medical Centre (KCMC) in Tanzania, in one of the poorest parts of the world. This has significantly strengthened KCMC's learning resources and tools.
Ansbert Sweetbert Ndebea, third-year anaesthesia resident at KCMC, said: “The programme is helping us to improve our skills and provide better patient care...The content is good and there are lots of videos and animations too. The material is continually updated and the assessments help us to prepare for exams. It’s great that we have access to a top-quality resource that is used internationally.”

- All undergraduate and postgraduate students in the University of Otago's Faculty of Dentistry now have access to e-Den to support their training. This follows a hugely successful pilot project amongst students in 2016.
Professor Paul Brunton, Dean of the Faculty of Dentistry at the University, said: “e-Den is a highly interactive, quality-assured resource. It provides a broad theoretical foundation on core topics, helping students to prepare for lectures and practical work. This also enables us to focus our teaching on discussion of key points rather than lecturing – helping to strengthen learning and understanding on the many complex concepts involved in dentistry.”
Andrew Lamb, Student President in the University’s Faculty of Dentistry, said: “e-Den is a fantastic resource. The wide range of topics and high-quality content will make students more self-motivated and passionate about what they are learning, giving them instant feedback on their progress with self-assessment."

Following the successful trial, the NZIMRT is pleased to be offering its members this programme and being able to support their continuing professional development.
