How do I begin the training? 

To begin the training, you must register and enroll in the course. 

  1. View the 11-minute video with California Surgeon General, Nadine Burke Harris, MD, MPH in Section 1; 

  2. Complete either case 1 (featuring a child patient) or case 2 (adult patient) in Section 2; 

  3. Complete four of nine cases, based on clinical interests and patient population, from among cases 3-11 in Section 3; and

  4. Submit the course evaluation in Section 4.

From there, you are automatically enrolled in all of the cases and you will immediately be able to take the cases that are relevant to you. You may complete more cases, but no additional credit will be provided.

I enrolled in the training but did not uncheck the boxes of the portions of the course that I do not plan to take before clicking the enroll button. Do I need to start over again so that I can select only the portions that I want to take? 

No, you do not need to start over or de-select cases you don’t want to take. You will be automatically enrolled in all of the cases.

You may complete more than four cases in Section 3—however, no additional credit will be given.
