Keeping on top of current recommendations and preconception health strategies can be a challenge. 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. Module 5 will be released in March 2017 and Module 6 will be released Summer 2017.
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.
Albert Einstein College of Medicine and the UNC Center for Maternal & Infant Health jointly own or have permission to use the materials that are part of this CME activity on the Internet.
