For each CME activity (expert curbside consult, tutorial, lecture, podcast or video) you select, you will be taken directly to the CME Information, which will tell you about the activity and authors, what you should learn at the end and how many credits the activity is worth.

Upon reviewing the CME information, you will be directed to continue on to the pretest. Upon completing the pretest, you will be directed to continue on to the activity, where you will be able to read, watch or listen to the activity.

Upon your completion of the activity, you will be directed to continue to the posttest. If a passing score is achieved on the posttest, you will be able to continue on to an evaluation of the activity and finally, you will be directed to continue on to your certificate.

Your certificate will also appear in your My CME section of the site for future referral.
