This article aims to present the possibilities behind e-learning, which can be applied in medicine. Researchers remain suspicious about the training of the healthcare sector staff with the use of cutting-edge technology (both various e-learning platforms and specialist educational programs). The opponents of the wide adoption of e-learning in the above-mentioned process accept the need of traditional knowledge transfer and verifi cation, which cannot be replaced with electronic remote learning. By contrast, the supporters of e-learning point out numerous possibilities behind cutting-edge technology, that is software, specialist educational equipment and the Web. The chief premise of the article is that it is one of the characteristics of developing societies to use electronic educational systems in selected fi elds of medicine. If healthcare sector staff is trained with the use of the global computer network, the e-health will develop as well.
