Frequently Asked Questions

  • Once you enroll for a Certificate, you’ll have access to all videos, quizzes, and programming assignments (if applicable). Peer review assignments can only be submitted and reviewed once your session has begun. If you choose to explore the course without purchasing, you may not be able to access certain assignments.

  • When you purchase a Certificate you get access to all course materials, including graded assignments. Upon completing the course, your electronic Certificate will be added to your Accomplishments page - from there, you can print your Certificate or add it to your LinkedIn profile. If you only want to read and view the course content, you can audit the course for free.

  • You will be eligible for a full refund until two weeks after your payment date, or (for courses that have just launched) until two weeks after the first session of the course begins, whichever is later.

  • Continuing Medical Education (CME) consists of educational activities that aim to maintain, develop, or increase the knowledge, skills, and professional performance in order to maintain competence and learn about new and developing areas of the medical field. Content for these programs is developed, reviewed, and delivered by faculty who are experts in their individual clinical areas. In various countries, a certain amount of CME-credit hours must be obtained by medical professionals to maintain their licenses.
