This course is blended, meaning a combination of online and onsite learning. Blended learning is an additional element to classroom teaching and one which supports existing teaching practices. It combines many of the best elements of face-to-face teaching (personalized learning and social interaction) while allowing greater variety and flexibility than a traditional classroom setup, responding to the needs of the modern learner.

Over 170 videos, totaling to over 15 hours of content are available to you on-demand before, during, and after the course for 6 months. A €475 value included in your registration! After completion of the online course, 15 CME credits will be available.
