The Academy believes that education and dissemination of information about the clinical aspects of medical aid in dying are essential. As such, all fees for CME/CE credits have been waived, courtesy of the Academy. Of course, when you complete one of our continuing education courses, donations are gratefully accepted so that we can continue our mission to educate aid-in-dying clinicians.

All interested parties, independent of continuing education credits, are welcome to view the educational videos below. CE/CME credits are available for physicians, nurses, and social workers. To receive CE/CME credit, please follow the path through the pre-test, video, post-test and evaluation forms.
