This course combines the knowledge and expertise of a nationally recognized faculty with a variety of educational methods to give participants the maximum opportunity for professional growth in this advanced practice role. In addition, this course will combine online instruction with a clinical session. The clinical session utilizes Gynecological Teaching Associates who offer live clinical pelvic examinations.
