    Our competency based development programs combine technical, clinical and softskils and focus on building up the core competencies for specific job roles in a sustainable manner. These vendor neutral programs are designed in line with international accreditation bodies and include tests and assessments as well as certifications. Development paths are available for most Radiologic Technologists as well as nurses, mid wives, and respiratory therapists and typically include 3 levels to move staff from beginner to experts.
  • Advanced Applications Training
    Designed to transform a learner with knowledge of basic functionality and usage of Philips systems into product specialists, our applications programs – delivered by a team of expert clinical application specialists – are available directly at your hospital site.
    Extra days with your application specialist is recommended for hospitals wishing to get the most out of their technology, but also for those welcoming lots of new staff, as well those departments with mixed levels of employees.
