FREE CME available - A Physician's Practical Guide to Culturally Competent Care

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Minority Health offers physicians an opportunity to receive up to nine hours of free CME credits through this self-directed training course. The modules in the course will provide training to assist physicians in meeting the needs of the increasingly diverse patient population.

A variety of self-assessments, case studies, video vignettes, learning points, pre- and post-tests are offered. In addition, you have the opportunity to submit your feedback and see what other participants think about the cases and the content.

For more information and to take advantage of the free CME credits while increasing your awareness of cultural competence in the provision of health care, log on to the site at:
