Ziehm Academy Reports Strong Demand for Basic and Advanced Training in Intra-Operative Imaging

July 20, 2011 — Ziehm Imaging reports a huge increase in demand for its training programs. In 2010 alone, the number of participants doubled for technical courses given by the mobile C-arm manufacturer.

Individualized training programs developed and held in cooperation with larger customers and partners also experienced a sharp rise in popularity. These included a tailored training course for 30 Iraqi users of the new lithotripsy machine, manufactured by Richard Wolf GmbH, which took place in spring 2011.

Ziehm has been supporting clinical users of its C-arms for many years through a broad range of basic and advanced training opportunities. The Ziehm Academy extends from basic technical training through to advanced, audience-specific courses in intra-operative imaging. These training programs, also given in the form of road shows worldwide, deliver an intensive, needs-driven learning experience in small groups.

Recently, Ziehm stepped up its training offering in cooperation with its larger customers and partners. In spring 2011, the company ran a specialized course for 30 Iraqi lithotripsy specialists. The course was developed in cooperation with Ziehm Imaging's long-term customer, Richard Wolf GmbH - manufacturer of endoscopes and products for minimally invasive surgery - and took place at the Ziehm Academy in Nuremberg.

Richard Wolf has worked with Ziehm for more than 20 years and equipped all generations of its lithotriptors with Ziehm technology. This training course was tailored precisely to the needs of the Iraqi participants and coordinated closely with Richard Wolf, which integrated the course as a module in their overall learning program.

Looking beyond high-tech advances, Ziehm regards ongoing training as an essential step in the move to bring innovative technologies to clinical environments in a safe and effective manner.

Due to popular demand, the company is planning more individual training formats.
