Tele-education, otherwise known as distance learning, is a method to deliver education and training to learners across electronic learning and teaching systems.

IHS utilizes tele-education to deliver national continuing education programming to medical and behavioral health providers working in the IHS, Tribal, and Urban (I/T/U) Indian Health system.

There are many benefits to tele-education, such as:

  • Low Cost: Saves money for the learners that would be spent on travel and lodging.
  • Decreases provider isolation: Allows connection to other providers across the I/T/U system.
  • Flexibility: Distance learners are able to access at their convenience.
  • Decreases interruptions to patient care.
  • Options: Allows learners more access to different courses and topics beyond what may only be available in their region.
