Continuing Education Modules
Keeping on top of current recommendations and preconception health strategies can be a challenge for busy clinicians. The educational modules on this website are short, engaging and filled with practical information to make continued learning quick and easy. It is our hope that visitors to this website will complete them, irrespective of their need or desire for CMEs, and that they will return often to see if new modules have been made available.
The modules can be used for CME credit by physicians, nurse midwives, nurse practitioners and physicians’ assistants. Scroll down for more information about receiving credit, computer requirements, and technical support. In some states, CME credit may be useful for the continuing education requirements of other professional groups, as well. Check with your state licensure board if you have questions.
Important: Download (you may need to choose “save as”) the module’s Powerpoint presentation to your computer. Open the Powerpoint presentation and view in “slide show” mode. Use the arrows in the presentation to advance the slides. The modules are available below.
