Accredited "live" continuing medical education courses for healthcare professionals are also available. Physician CME courses range from 1-hour offerings on a specific topic to multi-hour presentations covering details from the basic science and clinical evidence.
Similar courses are available for nurses, physician's assistants and chiropractors.
PHH will work with other professional healthcare organizations to create programs of interest for their members.
