Continuous Learning is designed to give you the best live online education available, in a format that’s friendly to your schedule. Just because your life is busy, that doesn’t mean you have any less desire to advance your skills and provide better care for your patients. This is why we created Continuous Learning.
Continuous Learning is a live, Zoom-based, program that offers a 2-hour course each month for 9 months, along with a 3-hour course for the 10th and final session. Our Founder, Patrick Hoban, and a few of our excellent instructors will teach the sessions, giving you greater access to our expertise than ever before. Each session will cover a different part of the body, including a short lecture followed by technique demonstrations with high quality video and multiple camera angles.
This is your chance to fulfil your license renewal requirements without giving away an entire weekend, or even leaving home. Continuous Learning is ultra-flexible in that you can register for the Full Program for a great value, or any amount of individual sessions. Remember, all sessions are worth live continuing education credit (see state approvals below)!

I wanted to freshen up my manual skills and this has been the best way for me to do that. The anatomy review is extremely helpful and the video angles of the techniques are great. I really do appreciate the constant repetition through the classes.
I liked that I could take away some things and immediately use them back in the clinic. There were even times when I was thinking of a specific patient when the instructor was talking about a technique. Having the videos is valuable.
This course was amazing and a great complement to the other Great Lakes courses.
I like the monthly 2 hour sessions. It is hard managing a family and giving a whole weekend for a course. The instructor was very knowledgeable.
Lots of practical, hands on information was given. Great course and great presenter. Thank you for sharing the presentation so techniques can be reviewed.
