Project holders & Support
The project "E-Learning platform for Medical Informatics to improve Vocational and ICT Skills (E-MEDIVIP)“ was developed under the consortium of the Bilecik Seyh Edebali University and the Sakarya University – Technological Faculty, within the framework of the Erasmus+ Program for Strategic Partnerships (Key Action 2 - Cooperation for Innovation and the Exchange of Good Practices). The project is supported by the European Commission and the Turkish National Agency (Part of the Ministry of European Affairs). The educational enterprise ARDA Consulting & Education acts as the direct working partner in Germany.
The healthcare industry is growing steadily and the software/devices of health informatics are an important part of everyday environment of healthcare workers. An increasing investment in the medical informatics industry to digitize health information has created a strong demand for health informatics workers.Therefore, it is necessary to train medical staff like secretary, nurse, monitoring technician, radiologist/doctor etc. on practical healthcare IT education in addition to their vocational education.
In recent years, medical informatics-related courses are taught at some vocational schools, high schools, colleges and institutes in Turkey. However, courses are usually taught on formal training and based on theory. According to various research about medical informatics in Turkey, the educations of medical informatics are extremely inadequate in our country. All these problems are originated from lack of staffs that have sufficient knowledge and competence.
In accordance with EU 2020 targets and the requirements mentioned above, E-learning platform for Medical Informatics to improve Vocational and ICT Skills (E-MEDIVIP) is going to design and implement. The aims of this novel distance learning platform and training modules are;
Because of being open-source, using interactive distance education methodology and containing pilot applications, it will contribute to raise the competences in terms of either theoretical or practical.
