PrepMD: A Stalwart in Cardiac Device Training

Changing Lives Since 2009
Cardiac Training, Staffing and Remote Monitoring

Co-founders Matt O’Neal and Bob Mattioli had both worked their way up through the ranks from device specialists to sales representatives to senior managers and officers by the early 2000s. And they both recognized a similar problem within highly specialized medical device careers: the real risk most organizations ran when making new hires was an unacceptably high new hire attrition rate. PrepMD was founded as a cardiac device pacing school to serve the need of trained cardiac device specialists, but soon grew to include cardiovascular and electrophysiology training, cardiac staffing services and cardiac device remote monitoring services. Today, PrepMD is a well-recognized brand in the cardiac medical device industry.
