What are the MIMS Learning Essentials subscription options?
There are two subscription options:
- An `event plus syllabus' option giving you access to a lively, focused one-day event plus 12 months of online access to 50+ hours of premium learning
- A `syllabus only' option giving you 12 months of online access to 50+ hours of premium learning
To purchase the `event and syllabus' option, you must first choose your event module, and purchasing this will also allow you access to the syllabus. There are three events in June you can choose from:
You can also purchase the syllabus only, which does not include an event.
What if I want to purchase a subscription but cannot attend an event?
You can purchase the Syllabus as a stand-alone subscription for £79 here.
What if I want to purchase an event but not an online subscription?
You cannot purchase an event on its own. The event includes a year's access to the Syllabus.
Will there be further events in 2016?
Following our launch events in June we will announce further dates for 2016 and 2017.
How do I book an event once I have purchased my subscription?

Do I get immediate access to the online content?

What will be the renewal cost?

Does my subscription renewal automatically occur?
No, you will need to pay again online to renew your subscription. We will notify you three months before your subscription is due to expire.
What happens if I want to cancel my subscription – will I get a refund?
You can only cancel your subscription with 24 hours of signing up. Any later than this and we cannot accept cancellations. To cancel, please send an email to email@example.com
How does my subscription work with the Clarity & RCGP Appraisal Toolkit for GPs?
You can save your reflective notes and CPD certificates and keep track of CPD credits earned with the MIMS Learning CPD Organiser. In all reflective notes in your organiser you will see a blue button “Add to Clarity”. Provided you have an account with the Clarity & RCGP Appraisal Toolkit for GPS, clicking this button will export your notes and CPD certificate into your current appraisal and portfolio. The first time you click this button you will be prompted to connect your account on MIMS Learning to your account on the Clarity & RCGP Appraisal Toolkit for GPs. Once you have completed this action once, you can start exporting your learning certification with one click. For more information see our step-by-step factsheet.
What is the structure of the event and do I need to prepare beforehand?
The Essentials events are split into four main sessions, covering more than 20 clinical guidance updates over the day. To make the most of the interactive element of the day, it is recommended that you bring a laptop or tablet with you, as well as your charger. Each session will have an accompanying document online which you will be able to view and make notes on during the sessions. At the end of the event you will be able to click a button to export your learning and CPD credits into the Clarity & RCGP Appraisal Toolkit for GPs. There will be technical support available on the day to help you with any queries. To see more information about each event, including speakers and session titles, click below:
