Be part of the future of healthcare education. Avkin is disrupting the traditional/out-of-date/20th Century manikin simulation education market. Avkin was founded by an Emergency Room Nurse and Educator who identified that manikins were not fit for the future of healthcare education. New graduates were entering clinical practice without the competence, confidence, and communication skills necessary to provide first-rate patient care. And that was putting patients at risk. Avkin's innovations and services are pushing the bar forward to reduce patient suffering in healthcare through simulation education. We imagine, create, and refine teaching modalities that incorporate simulated participants (live patient actors) and wearable technology to create the most realistic healthcare scenarios for learners to master therapeutic communication, empathy, psychomotor skills, and critical thinking. Manikins simply can't deliver this. We are the most ambitious company in the industry looking to disrupt the status quo (manikin training) and are looking for a determined, committed, ambitious, energetic, and motivated Solutions Consultant to propel our Solutions Team to the next level of growth.
