UCSF On-Line Continuing Medical Education Program

Since the clinical cannabis educational series began in 2000, they have been accredited to provide CMEs or CEUs to healthcare providers. The 2006 and 2008 conference proceedings are now available online for physicians to earn CMEs and nurses and other healthcare professionals to earn contact hours for their continuing education requirements. The University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine has granted the CMEs and the link on our web site will take you directly to our courses. While our conferences offer the attendees the opportunity to network with the faculty and other experts who attend the event, the online series is a very inexpensive way to learn about cannabis on your own time for the cost of only $20/credit for the program. DVD sets of the conference series are also available for purchase and would provide a great educational resource for clinics, institutions or libraries.

Accreditation:
The University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine (UCSF) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

UCSF designates this educational activity for a maximum of 10 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. Nurses and other healthcare providers will earn 1 contact hour for each CME or a total of 10 contact hours.
