Five reasons to visit the new AcademyU®

August 2018 – Vol. 37, No. 7

Lifelong learning is at the core of the Academy’s mission. We are committed to providing our members the knowledge, education, clinical tools, and professional support to help you meet the challenges of your otolaryngology practice and build mastery throughout your career.

2018 Annual Meeting webcasts on AcademyU®

Full conference registrants of the AAO-HNSF 2018 Annual Meeting & OTO Experience will receive unlimited online access to all recorded education sessions through AcademyU. Watch your favorite session again or explore a new topic. You can also obtain up to 30 more CME credits by viewing the CME Annual Meeting webcasts and completing the posttest and evaluation. The sessions will be available 24 hours after they take place in Atlanta, Georgia.

This summer, the Foundation updated, the technology platform used to deliver online otolaryngology education. We’ve made it easier to search, complete, track, and claim credit for your education activities.

Responsive design

The new website features a fully responsive web design, which allows seamless access across all platforms from an oversized desktop computer monitor, a laptop, or a small-screen device such as a smartphone or tablet. Our learners asked for the ability to access education “on the go,” and we responded with this important technology update.

My courses

Once you have logged in with your Academy ID and password, a list with your most recently accessed or purchased courses appears in a simple, clean “My Courses” box located at the top. You will not need to complete a course for it to be easily accessible. For example, start a new course at the office, go home, and then return to the website at a later time to complete it. It will be there waiting for you.

Improved search feature

Learners can now easily search more than 1,000 courses by title, subspecialty, or a specific topic and find everything available within the AcademyU library.

Instant access to your CME transcript

Gone are the days of waiting to receive your annual CME transcript in the mail. Your official transcript is instantly available and contains a list of all of the education courses you have completed through AcademyU to document your CME/MOC activities annually.

Quick links and the latest releases

New home page enhancements include quick links to the OTOcasts Academy podcasts, OTOSource comprehensive curriculum, resident education and resources, and recently released CME courses—including the popular Patient Management Perspective (PMP) case-based series.
