Paid members can use this website to access and RSVP to continuing education opportunities and to connect with other members.  This includes the ability to search the membership for various practice types, including: specialty, relief, mobile, exotic, and holistic. Members also have access to all continuing education materials, and can place classified ads free of charge.

Visitors are invited to view our continuing education calendar, search the classified ads, and access our public education and support pages.
