Learning portals are resource databases for PHD students, students of PHD Affiliate Instructors, program grads, and PHD Affiliate Instructors (including Instructors-in-Training). Portals are your gateway to written and video materials on a variety of topics specific to your program. They are designed to supplement your in-person instruction by reviewing important skills and techniques taught and often assigned as homework. Program manuals are being transitioned to the Learning Portals: sections will be posted as current students are ready for them. Please email PHD  to request portal content. Learning Portals are always growing!

The monthly Learning Portal subscription is $9.95 + tax and that includes access to all content that is appropriate to your enrollment or past enrollment level. You can cancel your subscription at any time by emailing PHD. Subscription is required for current PHD students, students of PHD Affiliate Instructors, and students of PHD Affiliate Instructors-in-Training. Portal subscription is optional but recommended for program graduates.
