Our Online Learning platform features a constantly growing selection of interactive courses. All courses are mapped to the ACRRM curriculum and are authored by specialists and ACRRM members. Individual modules vary in style and duration and include standard asynchronous courses through to online communities of practice such as Tele-Derm. 

The majority of modules feature a case based approach to learning, where participants develop their analytical and reflective skills through the use of real-life scenarios.

Some of the latest online courses currently include:
