Live Webinars through GoToWebinar
Due to COVID-19 and current social distancing guidelines, Medical Mutual and Professionals Advocate has transitioned from live in-person seminars to live webinars using the platform GoToWebinar. If you have already signed up for a 2 hour live in-person seminar, you will receive a letter requesting your email address to access the online live webinar. All new registrants will be able to attend a live webinar on the dates provided above. Once you have registered for a program (or if you have registered already and provided us with your email address) you will receive an email from Medical Mutual/ProAd containing a URL to register for the webinar with GoToWebinar (If you do not receive an email leading up to the event, please be sure to check your Spam or Junk folders. If you still have not received it, please contact the Risk Management Department) – you will only need to enter your name and email address into their system. Subsequently, you will receive a confirmation email from GoToWebinar containing a “Join Now” link to access the webinar and instructions on how to do so the day of the event. You will either use your computer’s audio (VoIP) or your telephone. For the best possible experience, please use a desktop or laptop computer with a headset for audio. We do not recommend logging in through your mobile device. We suggest creating a calendar event to remind you of the webinar. You will also receive additional reminder emails to alert you of the upcoming webinar.
Day of the event: You will receive an email alerting you that the event is about to take place. If you do not receive this email please check your spam or junk folder. If you still have difficulty accessing the webinar, or finding your registration link, please call our Risk Management department during regular business hours at 410-785-0050. You may log in 30 minutes prior to the event. You will enter the meeting muted. Any course materials (if applicable) and evaluation forms will be attached as documents that you can access on the side task bar at any time. Once the webinar starts, one of our coordinators or speakers will make an announcement. During the program, if you have any questions or comments, please use the chat function and one of our coordinators will alert the presenter and your question will be addressed. Much like our live in-person training, you will need to be present for the entire course. The same “grace period” is applied to webinars (no one admitted to the webinar after 6:30 – see program schedule above for additional details). Once the program is completed, please return your evaluation form to our Risk Management department by either fax (443-689-0261) or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. After the webinar is finished, you will be emailed a copy of your certificate of completion within 24-48 hours or 1-2 business days.
The first program costs $60 per person. Additional programs cost $25 per person.
