The primary target audience for the program is treating physicians (U.S. licensed MD / DO or global equivalent). The courses and earning of the certificate will also be available to practicing, licensed NPs, PAs, and PharmDs (or RPh degree holders involved in direct clinical services), or global equivalent. The courses will be available to those who are not practicing clinicians, but they will not be eligible to earn the certificate.
The requirements to earn the certificate include:
- Must be a treating physician (U.S. licensed MD / DO or global equivalent), or a practicing licensed NP, PA, PharmD or RPh degree holder involved in direct clinical services, or global equivalent
- Complete the coursework (all eight modules)
- anticipated to be approximately 1 hour each, for a total of 8 hours
- Pass all end-of-module assessments
- Successfully complete a comprehensive exam covering all modules
The certificate term is two years. Then, to earn a current certificate, which allows one to continue to use the SITC-G designation, an individual will need to take and pass updated coursework and assessments. If one misses the deadline for reissuance, he or she will need to retake and pass the full program.
