Enjoy 24/7 access to high-quality e-learning developed by the UK's medical royal colleges, Health Education England and other leading professional bodies. These e-learning has transformed medical education in the UK and it is now used in many countries worldwide.
Access to world-class healthcare training
eIntegrity provides access to world-class healthcare training developed for the UK National Health Service but now available globally.
Our learners include individuals (trainees and fully qualified practitioners), healthcare providers, colleges, universities and government bodies.
Developing diagnostic skills on a virtual ward
Building your diagnostic skills is a key part of any medical training programme, but this must always be carried out in a way that doesn’t jeopardise patient safety. This was exactly the thinking behind the development of eIntegrity’s Acute Medicine e-Learning programme (ACUMEN).
Available online, ACUMEN is packed with interactive, scenario-based exercises that enable learners to practise their skills in diagnosing a whole host of patient conditions in a safe, virtual environment.
Transforming healthcare training through online learning
This e-learning platform now has more than one million registered users. And these e-learning resources are now used by healthcare professionals in more than 130 countries.
We provide access to high-quality e-learning programmes covering a whole host of healthcare specialties, from anaesthesia through to radiology and ophthalmology. Our programmes have been written by leading healthcare experts and developed for the UK National Health Service (NHS) by Health Education England, the UK’s medical royal colleges and various other professional bodies. So, the training meets the highest quality and training standards. You can access our programmes by purchasing the relevant licence from eIntegrity. Please go to the ‘buy now’ section of the relevant programme page. Free trial learning sessions are available for many of our programmes on the eIntegrity website.
Is the learning relevant to healthcare professionals outside the UK?
Yes – absolutely. The content, which has been written by leading subject-matter experts, is relevant to healthcare professionals globally. Since the programmes were produced for the UK’s National Health Service (NHS), there are some specific references to NHS practices and country-specific legislation but the overall content is relevant in all healthcare environments worldwide.
How can I find out which topics are covered?
Details of the course content for each programme are available on the relevant programme page on our website. Go to the menu at the top of the home page, click on ‘Healthcare courses’ and select the relevant page. In addition, you can download a full list of the modules and sessions.
Do I need any previous qualifications or experience?
Our programmes have been designed to meet the needs of a broad range of trainees and qualified healthcare professionals. For most courses, we do not ask that you hold certain qualifications or meet certain criteria. Some programmes are aligned to specialist medical curricula so there is a certain level of medical knowledge required in these cases. On the whole, however, the programmes are accessible to a broad audience of learners. Several programmes, such as Compassion in Practice and Safeguarding Children and Young People, are arranged into various levels to suit different learning needs. Further details about the course content, and any specific requirements, can be found on the relevant programme page.
Are the programmes accredited for continuing professional development (CPD) or continuing medical education (CME)?
Our programmes have been developed and endorsed by the UK’s medical royal colleges and various other professional bodies who oversee CPD for healthcare professionals. In the UK, one hour of e-learning generally equates to one CPD credit but, for specific accreditation queries, you should refer to your professional or accrediting body.
Are the programmes available in other languages?
The learning content is written solely in English as it has been developed by the UK’s medical royal colleges and various other professional bodies. It would be impossible to keep track of the quality of the content in other languages, particularly as the programmes are updated on a regular basis.
Do I have to apply for a course?
No. You simply buy a licence for our programmes – there is no application process. Details about how to register are given in the ‘Buy now’ section at the end of the relevant programme page.
Why should I invest in your programmes?
Our e-learning offers exceptional value for money. You’ll have access to top-quality learning resources produced by leading experts for the UK National Health Service (NHS). You’ll benefit from the UK’s investment in worldclass training for its healthcare workforce and pay only a fraction of the cost of other training and professional development courses.
Making the most of our e-learning
Do I have to complete the training all at once?
No. You can dip into the content and complete individual sessions as you wish – fitting the training around your busy life. Since the programmes are available online 24/7, you can study wherever and whenever you choose – at work, home or even on the move.
Can I keep a record of my learning activity?
Yes. You can track your progress by downloading an activity report. Further information is available on the following support pages. You can also view a short film demonstrating the activity reports and certificates.
Can I download a certificate on completion?
Certificates are available on completion of learning modules. These certificates provide evidence of learning for training, continuing professional development (CPD) and continuing medical education (CME). The certificate is in two parts. The first part includes the logo of the relevant medical royal college or professional body. The second part features a summary of learning completed, which can be added to your training or CPD portfolio. You can view sample certificates on the relevant programme pages.
Will I receive a formal qualification on completion?
Our programmes are designed for self-directed learning. Healthcare training often requires practical, clinical training and experience alongside this learning. So, for this reason, our programmes do not provide a formal qualification. However, some programmes provide evidence of training to meet legislative or clinical governance standards. Check the relevant programme page(s) for details. It is worth noting that you can download or print off certificates of completion for all programmes. These certificates bear the logo(s) of the relevant royal college and/or other professional bodies with whom they have been developed. Our programmes have been produced in partnership with some of the world’s most respected professional institutions so these certificates will greatly enhance your training or professional development portfolio.
