World Travelers visit AHEC for Emergency Medicine Class

Dr. Marty S and Dr. Ryan P attended our June Emergency Medicine Class. You might ask, why are we telling you about these two ED physicians? Well that’s because these 2 American physicians (who do not know each other) accepted contracts for work in Australia and New Zealand respectively.

If you can’t make a scheduled class or want to customize your training then give us a call! We can design courses according to your practice requirements and/or skill level. AHEC has provided 24 specialized training opportunties in 2019 assisting physicians, hospitals, and universities.
