The syllabus, which may be modified to meet individual institutional requirements, provides a comprehensive description of a 14-module online course.

Each module may be taken online followed by an examination. In educational settings, successful completion of each module may be followed by a question and answer period and/or case-based small group discussions conducted by the institutional Course Director. A PDF is also available for each of the 14 modules, which may serve as a convenient resource in clinical settings.
