The Medical Cannabis Institute on Wednesday announced what it called " the first online, medical cannabis curriculum." The curriculum presents, in sequential order, a series of 12 courses designed to take a practicing clinician from the basics of the plant, its history and the underlying physiologic (endocannabinoid) system to the pharmacology and clinical practice of medical cannabis.

The curriculum is provided by the Society of Cannabis Clinicians (SCC), an educational and scientific society of qualified physicians dedicated to the expansion of knowledge on the medical use of cannabis.

Healthcare professionals can claim up to 12 CME credits (AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™), receiving a certificate of competency in clinical cannabinoid medicine upon curriculum completion.

"To date, there have been workshops or seminars on a variety of medical cannabis topics, but this is the first time that clinicians can find a pre-packaged set of courses that takes the clinician from the fundamentals all the way through clinical case study reviews," said Deborah Malka, MD, PhD, course director at SCC.

This all-in-one, eLearning curriculum can also help clinical staff within a hospital or health system attain a consistent, baseline understanding of the science behind medical cannabis – closing an education gap in today's standard medical training.

Site closes an education gap since the science of medical cannabis is generally not part of today's medical training

Scitent, Inc., a provider of eLearning business solutions for healthcare organizations, nonprofits, and associations, on Monday launched The Medical Cannabis Institute, a website featuring continuing medical education (CME) on medical cannabis topics.

The site is designed to help educate a growing global community of healthcare professionals, caregivers, and patients who want and need to learn about the science behind and clinical application of medical cannabis, according to Scitent.

The Medical Cannabis Institute's charter group of content providers includes Patients Out of Time, the Society of Cannabis Clinicians, and Healthy Choices Unlimited, and comprises distinguished faculty and healthcare professionals who are experts in medical cannabis.

As of September 1, 23 states and the District of Columbia have legalized medical marijuana and three states have pending legislation. As the legalization of medical cannabis advances across the United States, The Medical Cannabis Institute brings together content from experts in the field to close the education gap.
