CTO Fundamentals & Simple Education Partnership

The CTO Fundamentals / Simple Partnership:

In June 2016, Simple Education and CTO Fundamentals entered a unique partnership so that both days’ content is now hosted on the Simple Education platform, we are pleased to introduce you to this world class content and this innovative medical education platform that is truly a leap forwards in how medical education is delivered.

CTO Fundamentals:

The CTO Fundamentals Live! course took place in Klein, Amsterdam from the 2nd of June to the 3rd of June

CTO Fundamentals Live! showcases the top CTO operators in the world, supplemented by a vastly experienced selection of physicians.

This two-day meeting provides guidance on your learning curve, address common problems and offer hands-on opportunities.


Simple Education:

Simple Education is an online e-learning medical education platform that enables healthcare professionals from across the globe to engage with world class medical education, delivered by leading names in the cardiology world.

Simple Education enables users to purchase individual 'components', typically for £2.99, or whole streams or 'moments', typically for £12.99. This means HCPs can access world class content in their own time, at their office / home and engage with precisely the content they are interested in.

The unique Simple Education algorithm learns and adapts to user behaviour, which means that based on the content a HCP has already engaged with other relevant content will be suggested.
