The Department of Family and Preventive Medicine, Continuing Medical Education Division utilizes the UAMS-ITV Distant learning  network which encompasses seven Area Health Education Centers with eight additional health specialty centers, as well as other rural hospitals.  The programs will also be offered via Tandberg technology to the Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) distant learning sites developed through the Arkansas Department of Health Bioterrorism Program.  By having the opportunity to view programming via interactive technology, medical professionals are able to participate in continuing medical education programs at local hospitals and clinics without having to travel long distances, thereby losing “professional practice time.”

With compressed video networks, we provide rural-based community health care providers with quality CME.  Interactive Media (ITV) refers to telecommunication channels that allow the two-way exchange of information.  An interactive videoconference is the two-way exchange of video, audio and data, transmitted back and forth between two or more points.  This allows a health care professional in rural Arkansas to view, hear and have the opportunity to ask questions to a presenter.

For information on scheduled programming over a distant learning network site, please contact our office at (501) 526-5439 or email Lynn Mueller at
