Nearly 97% of AAD members who participate in the Academy’s Question of the Week activity provided the correct diagnosis of androgenetic alopecia.

Earlier this year, the Academy launched the Question of the Week in the Online Learning Center, which has proven to be a huge success with our members. More than 6,000 members have participated in the activity, claiming a cumulative total of over 110,000 MOC credits and nearly 29,000 CME credits!

This CME activity, sent by email every Thursday, presents AAD members with a compelling case each week, giving members a quick and engaging way to earn CME and MOC self-assessment credit. Take fifteen minutes a week to answer the question, review the preferred response, and see how your responses compare to your peers!

By completing each question you will earn 1 MOC credit and .25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. Credit will automatically appear on your AAD transcript and you will be provided a link to download a certificate.

Each quiz is stored in an archive and can be accessed anytime by AAD members. To access the archive, go to the AAD Online Resource Center and search for "Question of the Week."

I encourage all members to take advantage of this outstanding member benefit. Sign up below and complete a simple online form to start receiving the weekly emails. Subscription to the Question of the Week are free to all AAD members.
