Onsite Customer Training
Onsite training, conducted at the customer site, provides a very focused training program for one or more groups of users. Onsite training will jump start new users to become quickly proficient, or enable current users to rapidly expand their knowledge and capabilities.
An Online Training & Certification Program
Online training and certification programs are conducted directly on the client computer through a web-based, interactive session. Training sessions normally last 1-2 hours; the Visiopharm trainer and the customer will go through the different aspects of the software. New customers are trained to become proficient in the purchased software modules through a certification program. At the end of the certification program a certificate of proficiency is issued to all participants. Additional training hours can be purchased in 4 or 8 hours with our Professional Online Support package.
Visiopharm Software Workshop
Visiopharm is proud to our present our new innovative software course and workshop concept. We have extended the usual centralized software course with a workshop in which we will help the participants to move their specific projects forwards. For example, participants can get help to design their own APPs for an image analysis project or designing their own protocol for a stereological study. The Visiopharm Software Workshops are conducted once a year in Europe and once in the United States for up to 20 users. The workshop is targeting new as well as more experienced image analysis and stereology customers and is divided into two separate modules held in one week with no overlap:
2½ days training in Image Analysis
2½ days training in STEREOTOPIX™
Where you will get a thorough introduction to the software including both theory and practical exercises. Following the training you will be able to apply the knowledge directly to design your own APP’s or protocols with the aid of experienced teachers.
For the Copenhagen workshop, you can register here.

Driven by our goal to deliver effective and sustainable End-to-End digital pathology solution comprising the robust and reproducible quantitative image analysis methods from Visiopharm we have initiated the Digital Pathology Standards Integration Committee.
The Committee’s intent is to create a proposal for the elements still lacking to be defined however building on existing proposals for open international standards made by DICOM and HL7 utilizing the structure already established in the radiology area.
Combining the above standards within the structure of IHE, this committee recently has been adopted under the IHE umbrella of committees.
