Education Scholar 

Please note:

After 17 years of continuous operation, the Education Scholar Web site will be retired on June 1, 2016. In view of this development, we will no longer be taking new individual registrations or site licenses after June 1, 2015.  Renewals over the next 12 months will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

As we approach the retirement date we will be sending instructions and reminders to all participants who wish to download their test results or written work.

Over the next year, Western University of Health Sciences and AACP will be actively exploring other online options for addressing the needs of health professions educators. We thank you for your participation and continued support of this project.
