E-learning in Continuing Medical Education

One of the greatest challenges when arranging courses in nuclear medicine in Norway is that we are so few: approx. 25 fellows in training and about 30 specialists practising their profession, all of them spread over vast geographic area. Plenary courses are difficult to arrange since people have to be flown in. (It takes more than a day to travel from Bodø to Oslo by train…)

Today we launched the first Norwegian e-course for continuing medical education (CME; “etterutdanning”) in the Norwegian specialist health care system (“spesialisthelsetjenesten”).

We had seen record attendance in our national e-course in nuclear medicine under the COVID pandemic, therefore we wanted to be quick and launched our new course one day before Easter. Now we are waiting for feedback.
