The Arizona Telemedicine Program has been a leader in distance learning for over twenty years. We use distance learning technology to expand the broadcast area of the University of Arizona Health Sciences to the entire state including medical students, residents, patients and teachers. We produce interactive emergency preparedness exercises as well as interactive simulations and special events to reach students no matter who or where they may be. Please join us for an interactive videoconference, tour our T-Health Amphitheatre to see our eLearning Classroom of the Future and hear how YOU can produce some very impressive educational events and opportunities at a distance. The possibilities are endless: hangout with the astronauts on the International Space Station, take your class on a virtual field trip to a zoo, make friends with a classroom in Kenai Alaska to learn about Geography or connect to a group in Nogales, Arizona OR Nogales, Mexico to practice your Spanish.
