    New RSNA Online Education Platform Coming in August

    RSNA is upgrading its current online education platform in early August. Based on member feedback, the new platform will incorporate an enhanced, mobile-friendly user interface offering more than 600 online activities eligible for SA-CME credit.

    Current users of the RSNA eLearn library should complete all online activities by June 30 to ensure a smooth transition of completions and earned SA-CME credits to the new platform. The 2014 online Case of the Day activities and 2015 online Refresher Courses will no longer be accessible after June 30, so purchased activities should be completed by that date.

    RSNA members can always access their CME transcripts through the CME repository, which shows completed online activities and SA-CME credits earned. Non-members are encouraged to save copies of CME certificates for online courses completed by June 30 for future reference and record keeping.

    For questions or more information, contact the Education Center at ed-ctr@rsna.org or 630-571-2199.
