Course topic: 


Physicians treating recreational and/or elite athletes that are governed by the World Anti-Doping Agency rules and regulations are also subject to anti-doping policies. Failure to adhere to these policies can result in anti-doping rule violations and sanctions for both the athlete and physician. This CME activity provides current anti-doping specific information for physicians and other health and medical professionals. Learners will engage in the educational activity via interactive text, animations, videos, and case-based studies.


This course is designed for physicians of all specialties, including Sports Medicine and Orthopedics, as well as all other health and medical professionals that may interact with athletes.

California Assembly Bill 1195 requires continuing medical education activities with patient care components to include curriculum in the subjects of cultural and linguistic competency. It is the intent of the bill, which went into effect July 1, 2006, to encourage physicians and surgeons, CME providers in the State of California and the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to meet the cultural and linguistic concerns of a diverse patient population through appropriate professional development. The planners and speakers of this CME activity have been encouraged to address cultural issues relevant to their topic area. The Stanford University School of Medicine Multicultural Health Portal also contains many useful cultural and linguistic competency tools including culture guides, language access information and pertinent state and federal laws.
