Medical Courses by the University of Texas Faculty
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to VistaLink Medical Communications, an innovative Internet based company specializing in the provision of second opinion medical consultations, global travel medicine services, and medical education.
In collaboration with the University of Texas-Houston Medical School, we have developed an extensive on-line medical education section. We would like to invite you to access the VistaLink system at http://www.vistalink.com and examine our first offering, the Internal Medicine Board Review Course covering over 50 lectures transmitted over the Internet using cutting edge technology. You will have the ability to listen to the soundtrack of the lecture while accompanying text and graphics are visible on the computer monitor. In short order we plan to offer a course in Emergency Stroke Management and a Board Review Course in Pediatrics. The lectures are given mostly by University of Texas professors.
Access to this material is free of charge. This includes viewing the lecture and taking the evaluation exam. For physicians wishing to receive category 1 credit towards the American Medical Association Physician's Recognition Award, there is a small administrative fee. Upon successful completion of the exam and an evaluation form, credit is awarded by the University of Texas-Houston Medical School.
To access our CME course, as well as other services offered by VistaLink, please register at http://www.vistalink.com. Click on ‘New Users’ on the left upper corner and fill out the application form. Again, this is free, as there are no charges to join VistaLink. Once you join, you will see in the navigation menu an item for Medical Education. Click on it and follow the instructions.
We also believe that offering this service to your colleagues, residents, and medical students will be of great benefit to them. Please feel free to forward a copy of this message to any friend or colleague whom you think may be interested in this service.
Thank you for your time and consideration. Should you have any questions please call me at VistaLink at 713-666-2108 or contact the University of Texas-Houston Medical School Continuing Medical Education Office at 713-500-5249.
With kind regards, Guillermo Gutierrez, M.D., Ph.D.
