COVID-19 101 Online course

COVID-19 is the respiratory syndrome caused by SARS-CoV-2 and was declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organization in March 2020. The Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada has developed a 5-part comprehensive online course that provides an overview of the available evidence and up-to-date modifications/recommendations for delivering prenatal and postpartum care, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The modules provide an overview of the virology, epidemiology and transmission of the virus as it affects the general population, and specifically pregnant and postpartum women.

The following modules are currently available and new modules will be added as the content is finalized. 

Thanks to our COVID-19 champions, this course is offered on a complimentary basis. You must be signed in to register. If you do not have an account, you can create one by clicking "sign in" and then "create an account."
