Continuing education credits for naturopathic and chiropractic physicians are just a mouse-click away at National University of Health Sciences. Several accredited post-graduate CE courses are available online, and can be completed at any time, from anywhere there is access to Internet service.
The NUHS Lincoln College of Postgraduate and Continuing Education has added 20 new online courses to its user-friendly CE platform. “CE students can create an account on our web portal and keep records of all their CE credits and certifications in one location,” says Dr. Jenna Glenn, dean of the post-grad program at NUHS, who first launched online CE delivery in 2014.
In addition to its own courses, the NUHS website also has links to CE courses delivered by other providers, some of which are taught by NUHS faculty leaders like Dr. Terry Elder and Dr. Kevin Curtain.
“We will continue to offer a variety of excellent live courses here on our Illinois campus,” says Dr. Glenn. “However, now busy professionals have a choice that allows them to access NUHS quality courses at their own convenience without the need to travel.”
Here is a sampling of courses now available:
