Education Module Component
Diplomates and Fellows may choose to submit a full and complete education module and have annual dues waived for the first year. You must submit a 10 minute to 1 hour (or longer) web-based (or easily converted) educational program in video, audio or written form covering an aspect of stress management related to your field of specialty. The education module may be targeted toward the public or healthcare professionals. The module will be posted to our online Learning Center. Once the module is submitted with your application, it becomes property of AIS.
If you have further questions regarding this component, please direct them to Heidi Hanna, PhD, Executive Director.
