Online Programs: model for continuing education ?

Care Coordination Institude has a six sigma program to improve quality of healthcare in South Carolina. Also researchs, posters, presentations about healthcare quality can be reached from that web site.

Another one is University of South Carolina Continuing Education Program in Public Health Practice (CEPPHP). It serves as an online program about Public Health basics.

That type of initiatives can help quality professionals of Turkey health sector if it can be prepared and required without charge.

Edit: I found one another. It’s also free and quite beneficial.
