Online Relias Courses

Relias courses are offered in two formats:

  1. Traditional online format
  2. Personalized Learning Path

PPMs measure your level of knowledge on a given topic and provide you with a personalized Learning Path. This approach ensures you focus on information most useful to you rather than areas where you are already proficient. (CME credit will vary based on your personalized Learning Path.)

Here’s an example of how you may benefit with the learning path format: 
The “Fetal Assessment and Monitoring” series of courses takes 9.75 hours to complete. It took the physician 1.39 hours to complete a pretest. She then was assigned a customized Learning Path that eliminated course content for which she already demonstrated proficiency. Her Learning Path coursework took 2.35 hours to complete. The physician saved 6.01 hours by choosing the learning path option!

The following Relias courses are available to you:

Personalized Learning Path Format (CME credit will vary based on your personalized learning path.):

  • Forceps and Vacuum Assisted Delivery
  • Chain of Command
  • Maternal Sepsis
  • Managing the Medical Malpractice Case
  • High Risk Abdominal Pain in Adults Part 1
  • High Risk Abdominal Pain in Adults Part 2
