Ulan Nutritional Systems, the only company in the U.S. licensed to use the StudyJet platform, is celebrating one year of delivering practice management courses online
The demand for taking courses online has grown rapidly over the past few years, and according to the Physician Virtual Communication Survey, the demand is expected to triple by 2025. Of physicians polled, 84% said they’d prefer to do courses and CME’s online.
Ulan Nutritional Systems embraced this trend and, after evaluating all the available systems and platforms, one year ago acquired the rights to use the StudyJet eLearning platform developed in Russia.
There are many advantages to eLearning for practitioners:
- They can do the courses at a convenient time
- They don’t have to travel or leave their practice
- Practice staff can get trained without travel and time away
There are also drawbacks to online learning — studying alone without any tutoring or supervision can be challenging. Students study some material, answer some questions, do multiple-choice quizzes, etc. The problem is, they often go past words or concepts they don’t understand, go blank, get drowsy, or drift off into some daydream. There is no one to catch them when this happens, or help them if they have questions. Often, they end up abandoning the course. The average completion rate for self-study online courses is 4-27%.
The StudyJet platform takes a different approach. All courses are supervised by a tutor who is online with the students as they study. The tutor is not teaching the course, but is there to observe, assist if they have any difficulties, and give feedback on exercises, and answer questions. It’s the perfect combination of live one-on-one interaction and self-paced study delivered online.
Ulan Nutritional Systems offers practice management courses on the StudyJet platform, as most practitioners have extensive knowledge in their field but have never been trained to run a business.
“These StudyJet courses have provided the knowledge needed to expand and manage our growth,” says Dr. Aaron Skinner. “I’ve been able to put my staff on the courses too, which I would not have been able to do if they had to travel to Florida. It’s had a very positive impact on our practice.”
“The Office Manager course gave me the tools I needed to focus on making sure each post is operating smoothly and following detailed procedures,” says Nora Benshoof, the office manager at MetroEast Natural Healing Center. “Our patient numbers have soared without increased stress for the team. We are continually exceeding our goals.”
Lisa Dunn is COO of Ulan Nutritional Systems.
“We’re delighted with the results our practitioners are getting after doing these courses online,” Dunn says. “The decision to become the first U.S. company to use StudyJet has been a huge success.”
