Aesculap Academy is the only professional education institute with presence in every major continent and courses in nearly every medical specialty.
In 2005, in the 10th year of its existence, Aesculap Academy established itself in the Langenbeck-Virchow-Haus, the most traditional and prestigious house of medicine in Germany. In order to become a prominent center for medical training and education, it focused in 2006 on further developing its new center in Berlin.
Some novel courses delivered by Aesculap Academy included the symposium on "Physician Assistant", a new profession that is rapidly gaining importance. Aesculap Academy has also partnered with Lufthansa Flight Training to train doctors and other medical professionals on topics such as "Intercultural Communication for Managing Staff in Hospitals".
"The Berlin center successfully housed satellite workshops during the World-Endoscopy Congress in 2006 along with many associated workshops and seminars," says Frost & Sullivan Healthcare Industry Manager Vaishnavi Ananthanarayanan. "By hosting events of national and international importance, such as the Robert-Koch Award Ceremony and the German-Arab Healthcare Forum, the Aesculap Academy in the Langenbeck-Virchow-Haus has increased its visibility and reach as well as leveraged its core competency to gain more audience."
As the only professional medical education institute Aesculap Academy enjoys a wide curriculum, dedicated training modules, training infrastructure in multiple locations, immense flexibility of learning, and standardized structure and process of training globally.
Apart from conventional and proven workshops and seminars, it also offers several innovative courses in soft skill training and has broadened its portfolio to cater to a wide variety of topics, including healthcare issues.
Aesculap Academy is a truly global organization. In the Asia Pacific region, it strengthened its position in countries including China, Malaysia, Philippines and India. In 2006, Singapore was chosen as the regional hub for the Asia Pacific region due to exceptional infrastructure, hospital scenario, geographic location, English as a primary language of communication, and well-established guidelines for Continuing Medical Education.
Aesculap Academy is prominent in Middle and Western Europe, where it has not only established centers of learning but also developed dedicated websites with course information and other key links in local languages. It has also focused on North East European countries and has structured a full course curriculum for the Czech Republic, while a dedicated staff in Russia and the Nordic countries is developing training concepts.
"In the two years since its establishment in Mexico in 2004, the Aesculap Academy has made phenomenal progress in terms of training and has successfully collaborated with a wide network of medical societies and organizations," notes Vaishnavi. "With a dedicated coordinator and a certified trainer in South Africa, the stage has been set for further activities on the African continent as well".
