HSG Members are world experts in caring for individuals and families impacted by Huntington disease. The HSG wants to share their knowledge with as many health care professionals and care providers as possible, so HD families have access to quality care in their community. The Huntington Study Group’s popular CME4HD program provided at the annual HSG conference is now available online, anytime, anywhere – for FREE.

This program was planned and implemented by the North American Center for Continuing Education, LLC (NACCME) and the Huntington Study Group (HSG), and is made possible, in part, by independent educational grants from TEVA Pharmaceuticals (2019 lecture courses) and Genentech (2020 interactive case studies).

Only the formal certificate made available upon completion of each course is unique to the learning path.

About CME4HD Courses

Each learning path is broken down into separate courses, which may be taken in any order. Each course is further broken out by individual modules. Modules within a course must be completed in order to be considered complete per accreditation requirements. Modules will include an Overview document with course specific objectives and faculty disclosures, a video of the learning content presentation, a post-test quiz requiring at least 70% score to pass, and an evaluation.

The program can be completed on a computer, tablet, or mobile device, but at times you may choose to rotate your tablet or mobile device to see the entire screen more easily.

Earning Professional Credits

In order to receive an official certificate documenting earned credits, you must complete all modules for each course. Certifications can be downloaded by clicking on the Achievements link from the menu. If you have any questions, please contact Kevin Gregory at kevin.gregory@hsglimited.org.
