How to Use This Website

It is not necessary to log in to view any of the course materials on this website. Please explore and view all course materials freely.

Viewers seeking CME credit must successfully complete the course assessment. You will then have the opportunity to log in, complete an evalutation, and obtain credit. First-time visitors receive a unique THI CME ID along with your certificate. Use the same ID every time you complete an assessment and log in for credit, or when you search your transcript.

In summary, the CME process is:

  • 1. Read CME information.
  • 2. View course materials.
  • 3. Complete assessment.
  • 4. Obtain CME credit.
