Prior to the ELAG meeting, we would appreciate you putting some thoughts into the following questions relating to the design of the new foundation course.
Please take the opportunity to discuss these questions with your colleagues and local SNOMED CT network.

  • What do you see as the most important improvement for the SNOMED CT Foundation course?
  • Do you have recommendations to the duration of the course?
  • What learning activities and styles do you believe would be useful to focus on in the course? Please consider
    • Practical exercises (what types?)
    • Assessments (what extend?)
    • eBooks and written material
    • Presentations and videos

At the meeting, we will discuss the above questions, and we look forward to hearing your thoughts.

8Changes to eLearning ServicesAll

As per January of this year, our SNOMED CT courses are all free for SNOMED International Members. Only our certification exams involves a fee.

These changes are likely to cause an increased demand for our managed courses, i.e. the Authoring Level 1 course and the Implementation course. Practical limitations relating to resourcing allow us to enroll 40 students per AL1 intake, and 50 students per Implementation course intake.

Currently, course seats are offered by a first come, first served approach, but we may need to consider alternative ways of prioritizing our seats to ensure a fair distribution of learners across our Members.

Before the ELAG meeting, we ask you to consider how SNOMED International could address this dilemma.
