Hands On Heart
In March 2010, People4People, in partnership with Cisco Technologies, launched a pioneering programme of live, interactive e-teaching in Paediatric Cardiology. Since 2011, the programme has been supported by Children’s HeartLink. A content platform was built by LinkStreet Learning, hosting recorded e-lectures, journal articles and quizzes on Paediatric Cardiology. Until August 2019, the programme was supported by the National Board of Examinations, New Delhi, India.
By December 2021, over 925 e-classes were delivered and biweekly online seminars continue to be held. Since September 2019, the programme is open to all interested learners, endorsed by the Paediatric Cardiac Society of India.
Hands On Heart is the longest-running free online teaching programme in Paediatric Cardiology in the world.
