Feedback from our Students

"I would strongly recommend this course to anyone who is new to PACS, interested in PACS or is working in the Radiology field and would like expand their knowledge of PACS. I have been working in the medical field for 12+ years, 3 in Radiology, and have attended many training classes and seminars. I would place this seminar in the top 3."

"This training has more than met my expectations, a lot of thought has been put into the development of the program and it shows. I would rank this as one of the best training sessions I have attended. From the location to the content and guest speakers, everything was exceptional. Herman has provided a great service to the health care industry by developing these training materials/seminars."
