If you successfully complete the course and post test, you will receive a certificate of completion from the International Society for the Study of Vulvovaginal Disease. There is no CME applied for this program.
There will be twenty questions, each single answer “true or false”. You will also have the opportunity to leave comments.
– In order to receive the certification, you need to reach at least 80%.
– Below 80%. You may retake the quiz 2 more times.
If you still have difficulty, please contact us at [email protected].
Disclaimer: The questions contain at least two basic biases. One is that course attendees should use a microscope to examine vaginal secretions, and secondly, that you do not need a colposcope to examine the vulva if you have a magnifying glass.
