TheSynapse e-learning

January 2020 saw the launch of a complete revamp of TheSynapse online services. This was the fruit of a yearlong exercise where we wanted to put TheSynapse on an even greater professional level that it has been for the past twenty three years.

TheSynapse network now has two distinct and interlinked portals, thesynapse.net is dedicated to providing users with news and resources from many sources. To put it in a nutshell, we scan and go through loads of news items and publish succinct, relevant and timely news.

Both the Malta College of Family Doctors and the Medical Association of Malta provide accreditation of these sessions.

The aim of CME30.EU is to give the opportunity for each and every medical professional to keep up to date by participating in Continuing Medical Education sessions, delivered by some of the best local peers and can do so in their own space at their own pace.

TheSynapse is made up of an enthusiastic team each with diverse expertise, skills and passion and all working selflessly and dedicated to delivering an outstanding service. The work involved is huge but greatly satisfying. TheSynapse team welcomes anyone who would want to join in making this a great resource for medical professionals. In particular there TheSynapse welcome colleagues who are interested in participating as peer reviewers for the content to ensure it is always of a very high and up to internationally recognised standards.
