Following is a list of on-demand modules in the Herbs and Dietary Supplements Across the Lifespan interactive, web-based, continuing education program. Modules are appropriate for health professionals and trainees.  Although you may take the modules in any order, it is strongly suggested that you take the "Introduction to Herbs and Dietary Supplements Across the Lifespan" and "Safety of Herbs and Dietary Supplements Across the Lifespan" modules first as these modules provide the basic knowledge from which the rest of the modules are built. You may also use the glossary of terms to help find the perfect module!
 
These modules are presented through a series of case studies, question and answer exercises for reflection, and hyperlinks to source materials, resources, and other materials you may find helpful.   With this approach, you can go into as much depth as you want, personalizing your education.  Upon completing each module, you will fill out a brief evaluation, take a post-test, and receive a printable certificate.  A correct score of 70% or higher is needed on the post-test to receive credit and the module certificate. All completed modules remain available in your student account for review and reference in the future.

 

Upon completion of each module, you will have an opportunity to complete a post-test to earn a Continuing Education Certificate from The Ohio State Integrative Medicine.

 

 Modules are cost-effective! -- One-Time Registration Fee of $15.00 and $25.00 for each module (discounts may apply).
