In addition to courses designed to address health and healing lifestyle concerns, Duke University Health System offers a network of clinical and professional education opportunities. More technical in nature, many of these classes are open to the interested public with few or no prerequisites. The classes are hosted by the Department of Education Services and are usually held on the Duke campus.
These classes are augmented by the lectures, seminars and symposiums hosted by the Duke University School of Medicine. Though highly technical as well, these events present a unique opportunity to glimpse the leading edge research conducted at Duke.
The clinical and professional classes provide continuing education opportunities for staff and access to Duke resources for interested community members. They range from basic introductory material touching on communication and leadership skills to EKG interpretation and shock types, causes and treatments.
There are four categories of classes. To see a complete list of classes offered please visit the Education Services' Web site. Sample classes from each category include:
