The Oncologist CME Online is designed to meet the regulations governing the accessibility of federal electronic information products (Section 508). This design also conforms to the access guidelines developed by the Web Accessibility Initiative of the World Wide Web Consortium, in that provisions are made to assure access for those individuals with vision impairments. To ensure this capability, The Oncologist CME Online does not incorporate frames, multimedia presentations, user applets, or plug-ins, bypassing many of the issues outlined in Section 508. The program primarily consists of text to ensure fast downloads for those individuals with slow Internet connections. Where graphic images apply, the HTML "Alt Text" tag is utilized as a text descriptor to facilitate those individuals who may be using screen readers or other assisting devices.


You must have a modern web browser application, and your computer must be connected to the internet. No other hardware requirements apply.
