UAMS Offers Online Continuing Education Credits
LITTLE ROCK, AR — A new University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) website portal, learnondemand.org, allows health care professionals at any time to hear lectures and take classes online to earn continuing education (CE) credits.
“Anybody who has any type of Internet access from a smartphone or tablet, a laptop or a desktop, can reach the website and video lectures archived there 24 hours a day and take a class for credit,” said Sarah Rhoads Kinder, Ph.D., assistant professor in the UAMS College of Medicine Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. “It’s compliant with Android, iPad and more.”
Learn On Demand (LOD), a product developed under the UAMS Center for Distance Health (CDH), allows users to track all their educational hours and credits earned inside or outside the program. The site also is compliant with the CE requirements for all three national accrediting organizations for physicians, nurses and pharmacists. Among the other health professions to which LOD is approved to offer continuing education are registered dietitians, case managers, lactation consultants, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and emergency medical technicians.
Although online service is directed at providing continuing education first to Arkansas health care providers, it will be available for anyone else to use for a fee. An LOD user outside Arkansas can pay on the website for a class and begin taking it right away. Continue>
