Training Center Sessions

Arkansas e-Link extends a wealth of telemedicine knowledge through The Center for Distance Health. The most impressive aspect of telemedicine is that it eliminates barriers to quality care.

The UAMS Center for Distance Health (CDH) has established a Training Center to serve Arkansas and others developing their telehealth programs. By enabling telehealth access in all rural communities, patients around the globe can seek specialized care no matter their distance from the nearest tertiary center.

The Adam Rule CDH Training Center provides technological assessment and advisement on appropriate telehealth technologies for organizations interested in expanding or establishing telehealth systems. The CDH is able to assist health organizations successfully and efficiently branch into distance health.

Visitors may choose from the below menu of telehealth topics. Each visit is tailored to the needs of the visitor. General overviews are free to participating Arkansas groups; however, there is a fee for in-depth training. Out-of-state groups are also welcome. For a general estimation of the fees, see the price schedule below. Fee is dependent on the detail level and time required to explore the selected topic. The Center for Distance Health offers a free 30-minute telephone or video consultation to aid potential visitors in their decision.
