The Medi-Sota Education program offers a variety of workshops pertaining to healthcare including Acute Care, Long Term Care, Management, Business Office, Compliance, and other Ancillary Departments.  Most workshops are available at no cost or a reduced rate to members.  A library of training videos is also available to Members Only at no charge. 

Because Medi-Sota covers a wide region of MN, we also offer several workshops by videoconferencing so members do not have to travel long distances and can remain on site for their training.  Visit the Medi-Sota Education page to review a list of upcoming workshops.
