SNOMED CT E-learning Foundation course
Applications are now open for the SNOMED CT Foundation Course, which will start on 1st February 2015 and finish at the end of April 2015. Applications close at 23:59 US Pacific Time on 12 December 2014.
The objective of this course is to extend the depth and breadth of knowledge of SNOMED CT in the global community. The course aims to provide authoritative coverage of a broad range of topics related to SNOMED CT at a relatively basic level. It also enables the growth of more detailed understanding of SNOMED CT by enabling those who complete this course to join more advanced SNOMED CT E-Learning courses later in 2015.
There are no specific requirements for prior knowledge of SNOMED CT. This course is a good starting point for you to learn about SNOMED. However, if you have existing knowledge of SNOMED CT, the course is an opportunity to fill gaps, perhaps dispel a few common misunderstandings and demonstrate knowledge required to join more advanced SNOMED CT E-Learning courses.
Capacity of the initial course is limited and the selection process will seek to prioritize and balance applications from IHTSDO Member countries. Applicants who are not selected for the first intake will be offered future opportunities to take the course.
Details of this new E-Learning course and links to the application form are included in the below information sheet.
