Fairfax County’s Behavioral Health Online Training Resources for Medical Personnel includes three brief, online training courses. The first two are geared for medical professionals in primary health care, and the third is for behavioral health care professionals.

The online trainings allow participants to enter a virtual environment and assume the role of the medical professional interacting with a patient. Unlike many online trainings, these are interactive and dynamic with actions you choose in order to move the scenario along. You receive real-time feedback during the course of the training on how well you are doing. The courses are available online 24/7, are offered free of charge, and can be done whenever your busy schedule allows. Each training can be completed, if needed, in more than one sitting.
