Obstetrics Guided Learning Modules

Overview & Instructions

This activity is presented as part of ACOOG’s Guided Learning Modules. It provides members with current and relevant practice information while satisfying AOBOG Specialty Credit and AOA CME requirements.

Each module consists of at least four peer-reviewed articles selected by the ACOOG CME Committee, and posttest questions related to each article. Due to copyright restrictions, you must gain access to most articles independently, read them, then return here to complete the related questions. A score of 75% on the posttest is considered passing, and you will receive up to two opportunities to obtain a passing score.

The CME Committee has developed and approved important article reading and brief testing to help validate your Life Long Learning. 

Please contact ACOOG with questions. (cme@acoog.org)
