The American College of Cardiology announced it has partnered with Wondr Medical to create a new digital channel on the Wondr Medical Platform to amplify the college’s educational content.
According to a press release, the ACC’s channel is free to stream on all devices online and offers a variety of courses that CV professionals and primary care clinicians can take to earn CME credits anywhere in the world.
“By increasing the ACC’s global reach, we can have a more active role in providing education and support for health care communities around the world caring for underserved populations and helping to reduce the global cardiovascular disease burden,” Neal Kovach, MBA, vice president of global innovation and clinical transformation at ACC, said in the release. “Together with Wondr, we hope to create an interactive educational community where we can share our knowledge and better serve each other and our patients.”
Some of ACC’s existing educational resources, like NCD Academy, will be available as part of Wondr’s content, and the partnership aims to create and accelerate educational access for underserved audiences, according to the release.
“We started Wondr with a vision to deliver the finest medical education to medical professionals wherever they were. This partnership with ACC is the clearest possible example of that vision becoming a reality,” Justin Davies, MD, founder of Wondr Medical and clinical academic and consultant interventional cardiologist at the National Heart and Lung Institute, Imperial College London, said in the release. “Now our users in 175 different countries can access the ACC’s resources, starting with on-demand clinical education, on the platform.”
