Health professionals are required to continually update their knowledge related to their field of practice. One of the nice things about the digital age is that it’s easy to access continuing education activities online, and many of them are available at no cost. I freely admit that I’m a geek and I love learning new things, so I thought I would share some of the sites that I use to keep up to date. Since these continuing education activities are geared toward health professionals rather than the general public some of the more in-depth info might be a little hard to follow, but I think it could still be informative.
- American Psychological Association Trauma Division: webinars on trauma-related topics
- Global Medical Education: This site has a broad selection of webinars on mood disorders and psychopharmacology.

- Univadis: This has talks on assorted topics including personality disorders.
