The course is available in English and Spanish through the Geneva Foundation for Medical Education and Research (GFMER) at http://www.gfmer.ch/SRH-Course-2010/pre-eclampsia-University-of-Oxford/index.htm.

There are two versions: Basic for healthcare professionals who want to know/revise the fundamentals, and Advanced for doctors, midwives and nurses who want to know the evidence behind the recommendations.
Following successful completion of the course, participants may take a knowledge assessment test. Those who correctly answer at least 15 of the 20 MCQs are entitled to a course certificate jointly signed by the Nuffield Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology at the University of Oxford and GFMER.
