PEPconnect provides medical professionals with customized training and professional development opportunities, with direct learning experiences in topics on laboratory diagnostics, medical imaging and minimally-invasive therapy. The learning activities were designed at Siemens Healthineers by experts in key areas, such as application design, instructional technology and information security. Learners can also construct a learning experience personalized to their needs, and share their learning experience with others via a range of social media channels or groups they are a part of within PEPconnect.

More than 200,000 medical professionals are already using PEPconnect for their training and professional development needs in seven different languages (English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Korean and Japanese).
