In the dynamic world of healthcare, staying updated with the latest patient safety practices is crucial for healthcare professionals, especially those working in the operating room (OR). We're excited to announce an expansion of our educational offerings at Medline University with the introduction of nine new microlearning courses, each designed to enhance patient safety in the OR.

Our new microlearning courses have been carefully crafted to address nine key areas of concern in the OR, empowering our learners to provide the best possible care to their patients.
