“We joined this partnership as a way to bring our members the best educational courses available at the click of a button,” said Executive Director Mark Jackson. “Being a physician is a lifelong learning experience, and we wanted to deliver that opportunity in the easiest, most affordable way possible to Alabama’s physicians and other health care providers. This program was designed for physicians who are busy and have little time to spare but who want to continue expanding their educational prospects to the best of their abilities. Our new online, OnDemand learning experience provides an exciting venue to learn from our own courses in the catalog as well as from others across the country.”
