Session Description
This session will, through our first panelist, Dr. Alvaro Margolis (Uruguay), describe the experience of interactive online CME across Latin America, a region where one million physicians live and work; how this is possible across different health care systems, educational needs, accreditation standards, culture and languages. India, represented by Vaibhav Srivastava and Asia, by Lisa Sullivan, will showcase similar issues and challenges experienced with high HCP populations, numerous languages, vastly different cultures and the rise of interactive online CME across the regions. We will discuss what elements from these experiences could be useful for anyone wanting to implement similar international programs in these regions and globally.
