We offer two separate learning tracks for our users. If you're a doctor, registered nurse or physician assistant who would like to learn and receive Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits or contact hours for a course, then the CME track is for you.
If you're not interested in CME, but would like to learn about a particular topic and earn a professional development certificate, then the "For Everyone" track is for you. This track is ideal for health service providers who don't require CME, as well as industry professionals, researchers, and patients.
To sign up for a course, first select the topic you're interested in and the type of course you wish to enroll in - CME or "For Everyone". Then, simply complete the registration process and you're all set.
You'll receive an email confirmation with all the information you need as soon as you've completed the registration process.
We present all of our courses in easy-to-navigate video lessons. Simply watch the video, complete a short quiz and move on to the next lesson. Courses vary in length depending on the topic, but are generally between 5 and 15 lessons.
When you've completed all the lessons and associated quizzes, you'll be asked to fill out a short evaluation to complete the certification process.
Once you've completed a course and associated evaluation, your CME or professional development certificate will be automatically generated and available for immediate download. You'll also receive a copy of your certificate via email.
