The Learning Center (TLC), created by the American College of Physician Advisors, now includes new, AMA PRA Category 1 CME credit material added to our original modules which have been updated where needed. All are arranged by content whereas before they were arranged by release date. This means there are now four, focus-specific Module Sets.

We hope this addition of new material and new method of organization makes it simpler and more effective to learn what you want, when you want.
