25 years of medical education
Aesculap Academia is celebrating 25 years of delivering world-class expert medical and surgical education.
Surgical education centre Aesculap Academia is celebrating 25 years of delivering world-class expert medical and surgical education on the very latest medical and surgical topics and thinking.
The medical education concept started in the 1990s with a single course created in response to requests from surgeons looking for assistance in expert medical educational training. Following successful early pilot events, B. Braun formalised the area of the business and in 1996 it officially became known as Aesculap Academia UK.
Not only do they organise training courses for medical professionals throughout all stages of their career; they also partner with some of the top British Societies. Working closely with them to establish meetings that create effective interaction and collaboration between diverse disciplines.
The UK arm is part of the global Aesculap Academy - Which runs the training and education platforms for the entire B. Braun Group and has established an international presence in over 40 countries. To date around 25,000 courses have been held with over one million participants, and in 2020 expect to have over 100,000 participants attend digital courses. Today, it is one of the leading medical training institutions.
Aesculap Academia also recently received a Royal College of Surgeons accreditation in recognition of outstanding surgery-related education provision by a surgical education centre. This award of excellence means that Aesculap Academia is now accredited as an official RCS centre following several review visits, after which it was recognised as ‘efficient’ with ‘quality teaching’ and ‘dedicated senior leadership’.
Aynsley Pix, Business Development Manager for Aesculap Academia said: ‘We are delighted to celebrate our 25th anniversary, it is a testament to the hard work of the teams over the last two and a half decades! – Their commitment, delivery and management of a full portfolio of medical education courses has enabled us to grow the business in the UK, and all endorsed by the RCS!’
‘We look forward to continuing to share our pursuit of excellence in healthcare with our customers and partners as well as learning experiences for anyone who strives to protect life and health.’
