Our curriculum development team has put a great deal of thought into how to maximize our in-person time and also deliver digestible content that can be offered remotely. We are keeping the total number of contact hours and the total amount of lab time consistent; neither of these values will change when shifting from the old format to the new format. Below is the published schedule for the new format of Pelvic Floor Level 1. Once the new schedule for Pelvic Floor 2A, 2B, and Capstone are finalized, we will publish those as well.
