This page provides an overview of the program agenda as well as links to required recorded sessions, important references, ancillary materials, and assessments.  Please be sure to login to each session at least 15 minutes early as we will spend a few moments going over important information prior to the start of the educational programming.  You must attend all sessions as scheduled.  There are no make-up sessions or refunds for failing to attend a required session.  Your attendance and participation is continuously monitored throughout the general sessions.

All participants will receive a follow-up email 1 hour after the final session.  Use the links in the follow-up email to link to this on-line syllabus page to view required recorded sessions and download ancillary materials.  You MUST register for and view all required recorded sessions.
