The continued development of telemedicine--and the assurance of quality, accessible healthcare into the future--relies on training a skilled, competent workforce.  Providing clinicians, administrators and engineers with a skill set in telemedicine ensures that our healthcare system best utilizes the available remote healthcare technologies. 
Since 2009, ATA has accredited high-quality telemedicine education programs, to ensure that these courses meet acceptable standards of quality in terms of their content, methods, and resources.  If you are looking for formal degree- or certificate-level training in telemedicine, we strongly encourage you to consider one of the training programs listed below.  Each one has met the rigorous quality standards outlined in ATA's Training Program Accreditation and is a model program for telemedicine education.
