The SCC is pleased to collaborate with TMCI Global Link Opens in a New Window (TMCI) to offer the first online, medical cannabis curriculum that 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.
Developed by the Society of Cannabis Clinicians, this all-in-one eLearning curriculum offers physicians and other healthcare professionals 13 CME credits and a certificate of completion in clinical cannabinoid medicine. Learn more Link Opens in a New Window about the curriculum.
