Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do I take a facilitated course?

    During the scheduled online session, watch the lectures and read course materials located inside the online classroom according to the instructions inside your classroom. Online activities include discussion board, case studies and in some courses group work projects. You log in to the course website a few times a week to read instructions from the faculty, ask questions or add comments to discussions. It’s not too much to check in every day, but you decide how often you need to participate.

  • How long do the courses last?

    Typically, they last four to six weeks.

  • Will I have homework?

    Yes. Weekly instructions will be provided before the week starts so you can plan your time.

  • How do I claim CME?

    You will take a CME evaluation after each course. If you are in our Master’s or CPE program or a certificate program, you will take an online test to qualify for credit. Tests typically take 30 to 75 minutes, but you have up to 120 minutes. Tests must be taken in one sitting. After passing each test, your transcript is updated automatically. Then you will be able to claim CME right from our website.

  • If I sign up today, when can I start? Must I wait for the class dates?

    You receive access a week before the start date, so you can get familiar with the course layout. Classes are designed to be completed during the span of the scheduled session. You will need to participate in the course during the scheduled session.

  • Is there an evaluation process for these courses?

    Each CME activity includes an evaluation process to determine that the learning objectives have been met and that the activity was of educational value to the target audience and was unbiased. The evaluation also assesses whether or not the CME activity resulted in a change in physician practice behavior and offers participants a method of feedback.
