Additional Live Clinic Info Feb. 1-5

PROBIRT will be presenting a series of live, online clinics Thursday, February 1st through Monday, February 5th. This means you can attend a clinic without going to the time and expense of traveling. In fact you don't even need to leave your chair! With the live clinic user interface you can watch video of the clinician, listen through your computer speakers, and ask questions of the clinician in the chat box.

In order to view the live clinic, you must have the free Flash Player installed on your computer. If you are able to view the streaming videos on the PROBIRT site such as the free videos, you already have Flash installed and are ready to go. If you experience difficulty with viewing these videos, please contact us BEFORE Thursday, February 1st. No technical support will be given during clinic sessions.

The link to the clinics pages will be posted for each clinic at YOU MUST FIRST LOG INTO PROBIRT TO ACCESS THIS LINK AND TO VIEW THE CLINICS. IF YOU ARE NOT LOGGED IN, THE LINK WILL NOT SHOW. Please also refer to this page for scheduling changes and updates.
