Courses

What does a course look like? 

Each program has similar content structure of Course > Modules > Topics. You can always find the table of content in the right (widget) area of a page.

How is my completion of learning activities recorded/tracked?

Make sure to click the ‘MARK COMPLETE’ button at the bottom of the page when you complete a module. When there is learning activity in the topic, the ‘MARK COMPLETE’ icon will not be clickable until you complete that learning activity.

Can I finish a course with my own pace?

For your self-paced learning, you may exit from the middle of the course and come back later. When you log in the e-learning portal again, click on ‘RESUME LEARNING’ so that you will be redirected to where you left last time. In most cases, you have up to one year to finish a course.

What is this comment field in a page of a course?

The comment field serves as discussion board for learners. You are encouraged to reflect on your learning and leave comments, as well as respond to other learners’ comments. Please be respectful and courteous, as if you were having a face-to-face discussion.

How do I take and/or access my notes while working through topics and modules?

While on a topic or module page, you will find a “Take Notes” button at the top right-hand corner of the screen. Check out the how-to video guide below for taking and accessing notes.

May I revisit a course that I have completed?

You may revisit the course content that you have completed as long as the course is not closed.

What information related to the courses can I access without revisiting the course content?

Tools and Resources and Ask an Expert are outside of the courses. You can directly visit these two places for topic specific support needs; you don’t have to log in and go back to the course content.

How do I sign up for other CME courses, including blended programs?

Blended courses have online and in-person components. Due to the in-person component, all registration for blended and in-person courses are done through the main CME website. To look through the course calendar click here; if you already know the course you want to register for click here.

 

Webcast

What is a webcast?

A webcast means taking the media and broadcasting it in real time over the Internet.We offer real time webcast for some of our featured CME courses. If you cannot attend the course in person, webcasts make it possible to hear the sessions in real time while at the same time watching the presentation slide show from your own device. Further, you may interact in real time with the other participants through the comment field in the webcast.  This also allows you to submit questions to session speakers during each Q&A.

Which category of CME credits can I claim for watching a real time webcast? 

Our real time CME webcast is accredited as Mainpro+ Group Learning / MOC Section 1 group activity.

What equipment do I need to prepare for watching a webcast?

You need a device (desktop, laptop, tablet, or cellphone) with a stable Internet connection for watching the webcast. Check if your computer/device has latest version of flash player installed and enabled in your browser. This can be done by visiting http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player.html .
