Upon faculty verification and approval, you will receive a course approval email with further instructions.
(Important tip: If you type or select “ALSO,” many of the fields are pre-populated.) After your course request is approved, you will receive a CME approval email with the official statement and credits for your course. Approval can take up to four weeks.
You will receive course materials in one to two weeks. Allow time for participants to receive syllabi at least one month prior to course start date.
Include your CME application number when submitting forms to ALSO staff. Once forms are received, you will receive certificates, wallet cards, and CME credit.
Course participants must have current ALSO Provider status.
The small class size of each refresher course is reflective of the faculty-intensive and “hands-on” nature of the course. Class sizes can range from 2 to 60 participants.
