Memory Power for Health Education

Dean Vaughn, Author

Robert M. Maddestra

Peterson’s, a Nelnet Co.

Dean Vaughn is the world’s leading author of applied memory programs for a

range of subjects. His total retention courses have revolutionized teaching of

medical terminology and human anatomy. No learned skill can approach the

value of a trained memory and ability to apply it to all phases of achievement.

Designed for maximum memory retention, The Dean Vaughn System offers

a unique method to make it easy to remember (and pretty hard to forget!)

thousands of medical terms without the monotony of repetition or homework.

These proven techniques are invaluable to students pursuing a program of

study in the health professions.

HowWe TRAIN Health Professionals:

Professional Development in the

Every Day

Ilya Plotkin

Assistant TRAIN Director

Public Health Foundation

Every day, health professionals, including students, mid-career professionals,

and those about to retire, learn and explore topics relevant to building their

skills, knowledge, and expertise. Sometimes trainings are simple updates,

while other times, the knowledge is entirely new and timely (ex. Ebola or Zika).

Providing training to the broad health workforce is challenging. Many health-

focused organizations have embraced e-learning as a means to get the most

information most quickly to the largest audience. TRAIN Learning Network, has

a partnership between local, state, and federal agencies, academic institutions

and nonprofit organizations, like HOSA. TRAIN reaches over one million health

professionals around the world with thousands of online training opportunities

from nearly 4,000 providers. Learn how to access TRAIN and how HOSA

members and advisors can utilize TRAIN to support educational efforts.
