Education, Training & Opportunities

The WHOCC-eHealth is involved in a number of education and training activities. We are conducting a literature review on digital and eHealth education and training programs to inform curriculum development in digital health. We are leading the AeHIN Research Group, with the centre Director: Prof Teng Liaw contributing as a member of the AeHIN Working Council, to coordinate a range of training and support activities in building the capacity to address the GAPS (governance, architecture, project management and standards). The methods used includes needs analysis, evaluation, training and certification. Activities being considered include joint academic supervision and/or mentoring among AeHIN university partners; as well as with partners such as the Asian Development Bank.
