Who designs (instructs) these courses?
All the courses are developed by sub-specialty faculty in North America relevant to that area of expertise under guidance from Academy Directors (medical educators). We start by defining the target audience and key objectives (goals) of the course.
What is the duration of a course?
Each course has different duration based on topic, target audience, course methodology (self-paced vs guided) (individual vs cohort-based), objectives of the course and outcomes. We have courses from few hours (workshops) to 1 year (mini-fellowship) duration.
