What is the VMMC Online Training Hub?

The VMMC Online Training Hub (OTH) is an eLearning platform that provides classes, resources, and communities of practice to help clinicians advance their skills and knowledge around performing voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC). The OTH will be used to cover the didactic, theoretical VMMC information currently learned through in-person workshops. Learners will complete and pass this online course before proceeding on to their in-person clinical practicum.
