The Massachusetts Medical Society – the oldest continuously operating state medical society in America – is sponsoring and accrediting an online study program launched by TheAnswerPage.com which aims at offering a quick and informative overview of medical cannabis, designed to help train current medical professionals which may be interested in, but have little knowledge of the benefits, history and uses of cannabis.
“Most medical schools are lagging in teaching the scientific facts about the medicinal use of cannabis,” stated Sunil Aggarwal, MD, who’s a resident physician at New York University’s Medical Center, “It’s great that doctors can now get excellent and rapid CME training on medical marijuana at TheAnswerPage.”
The coursework covers numerous aspects of medical cannabis, including an examination of the five most studied cannabinoids, an overview of the endocannabinoid system, an explanation of state and federal marijuana laws, etc..
The program – which was initiated in February and has introduced new content almost daily – features a quiz and a crossword at the end of each section for people wanting to test their knowledge of what they just learned.
This new program – which can be found by clicking here – was designed to educate medical professionals, but is useful, informative and free of charge for everyone.
