Learn New Career Skills

The Medical Library Association's Self-Paced Courses will help you acquire professional and workplace skills. You can learn to communicate more effectively, run meetings, design courses, and become a leader in your workplace. 

These courses use scenarios familiar to health information professionals and medical librarians. Many of the skills they foster are valuable to a wide range of information professionals, nurses, instructors, and anyone who works with other people.
