Medics.Academy – a revolutionary UK company delivering global access to world-leading medical education – and the Indian Confederation for Healthcare Accreditation (ICHA), New Delhi India, have announced the launch of a pioneering education programme to help accelerate the training of healthcare workers across India.
At an online panel discussion held on 24th October, the two organisations – supported by a distinguished panel of industry experts – came together to shed light on the new “Improving Healthcare Practices” programme, with the aim to jointly work to impart training in India on Rebuilding Trust in Healthcare.
