Sponsor an ALSO® Refresher Course

Comprehensive, Interactive Learning

The one-day ALSO Refresher Course is designed to offer current ALSO Providers a review of the ALSO curriculum, while renewing provider status for another five years.

Sponsor a Course in Four Simple Steps

Sponsoring a refresher course may appear daunting at first. Here are four easy steps to help simplify the process.

For complete details, view the ALSO Refresher Course requirements »(12 page DOC)

STEP 1: Complete the ALSO Refresher Course request form.

Upon faculty verification and approval, you will receive a course approval email with further instructions.

STEP 2: Complete a no-fee AAFP CME application.

(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.

STEP 3: Complete the ALSO product order form.

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.

STEP 4: Complete participant and faculty form after the course.

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 Requirements

Course Participant Prerequisites

Course participants must have current ALSO Provider status.

Class Size Recommendations

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.
