ISfTeH Education Program
The ISfTeH recognising the importance of education and training in telemedicine specifically and digital health in general decided to create and integrate the "ISfTeH Education Program" under the umbrella of the ISfTeH Management Board. As such, education is positioned more formally within the structure of the ISfTeH, driving new initiatives forward.
The ISfTeH Education Program will coordinate and manage the overlapping education activities of all the Society's stakeholders, foster key education and training activities in the telemedicine and digital health fields and raise the profile of the Society in terms of visibility and exposure as a global partner in digital health education and training.
A special sub-section of the ISfTeH Education Program will coordinate the activities pertaining to the student membership category with Dr. Adolfo Sparenberg (Brazil) continuing to oversee these activities.
CONEDIG (Consortium of Educational Institutions in Digital Health) is an independent body that operates under the umbrella of the ISfTeH and now of its Education Program. Its mission and purpose is to assist the Consortium partners to coordinate their programs around digital health education such as teaching, research & development, practical applications, in view of graduation, post-graduation and workforce training.
Prof. Dr. Jefferson Fernandes (Brazil) has been appointed as first Director of the ISfTeH Education Program.
