John Bielinski leads a Sarasota session for 30 hours.

With a goal landing in Guinness World Records for the longest medical lesson, John Bielinski Jr., CEO of American Medical Seminars Inc., taught 25 physician assistants for 30 consecutive hours Nov. 16.

In a Westin Sarasota ballroom, Bielinski began teaching his seminar at 4 a.m. on everything from the cardiovascular system to behavioral science. 

Students had to remain awake and alert, though they received the equivalent of a five-minute break every hour. Donation proceeds from the event will go to the Wounded Warrior Project.
