Training tomorrow's lifesavers

New-generation connected medical devices are helping doctors care for patients

At Philips, we believe we can make life better. For innovations to be meaningful, we build relationships and ensure that our products and solutions are addressing people's needs in the right way.

And that means supplying help as well as hardware. Medical training doesn't end with graduation, as this film at the American University of Beirut shows.
For in a technologically-advanced world, a new generation of connected medical devices is able to provide an unrivalled level of healthcare no matter where you live. But it’s no good simply investing in pioneering products such as high-tech radiology devices, MRI scanners and other medical imaging tools: doctors need to know how to use them and improve patient care with them. Which is where Philips comes in, not only providing the technology, but expert developmental medical training too, by partnering with key stakeholders.

You think you've finished medical school and your training when you've graduated. In fact, you spend the rest of your life in training. These innovations have forced us to keep that mindset".

The American University of Beirut itself is a fascinating place where students and professionals from Iraq, Syria, Palestine and all over the Middle East join colleagues in Lebanon—long with private companies such as Philips—to develop essential life-saving skills that they can take back to their home countries, and to learn how they can make a difference through digital innovations. The medical training is a collaboration that not only teaches new skills, but is spreading the finest medical care through some of the world’s most vulnerable populations, living in impoverished circumstances or war-torn countries. And that means supplying help as well as hardware. Medical training doesn’t end with graduation, as this film at the American University of Beirut shows.

The main health sector partners in Lebanon include NGOs and international bodies?

True. An estimated 1000 local NGOs and international organisations play an important role in the Lebanese health sector. International organisations offer technical, administrative and financial support to local bodies in order to improve the health of the Lebanese population and enhance the health system in the country.
