Watch over the shoulder of one of our physicians, nurse practitioners, or PAs as they go bedside in the ED to assess and diagnose a simulated patient. Each video is followed-up by a series of questions posed to the student and then a summary by the physician.  A short quiz on the topic addressed finalizes each class.

The Nano Course videos are free and if so desired, after successfully completing all modules with a 100% score, students can apply for a Certificate of Completion from the University of Colorado School of Medicine for a $50 fee (covering our costs of producing the videos).

Due to the nature of these courses, we cannot issue refunds for certificates purchased.
