Educational Symposia is constantly exploring ways to better serve our customers. Subscribers of our DVD CME teaching programs asked for a simpler way to share a DVD Teaching Program. We listened and are excited to introduce the DVD CME Pack.

Here's how it works. Once the initial order for an entire set is placed, order as many DVD CME Packs as needed at a significantly reduced price. It really is that simple!

Educational Symposia's innovative DVD CME Packs allow each participating physician to own his/her set of DVDs. Having their own set provides the opportunity to view at their convenience and add to their personal reference library. DVD CME Packs are priced to make it a practical alternative to "waiting in line" to receive the next DVD.

Each DVD CME Pack contains: 

  • An entire set of DVDs in a convenient case designed for durability and ease of access  
  • One CME application and test
  • A one or two volume syllabus (depending on the series). Syllabus is included in the purchase price but is not enclosed in the DVD CME case.

See order form to order a DVD CME Pack for this series. To order a DVD CME Pack for a previously purchased DVD teaching program, visit us online at www.edusymp.com, call toll free (800) 338-5901.

Multiple CME Subscribers...

Educational Symposia DVD Teaching Programs are accredited for AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM for three years from the original release date. Once the initial order is placed, the number of CME applications and/or DVD CME Packs that can be ordered is limitless. See order form for pricing.
