Cleveland, OH, November 10, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- The Core Content in Urgent Care Medicine, a 60 hour video CME program, is having a “Use it or Lose it” event to encourage physicians to use their CME stipend before it expires. Many physicians and physician extenders have a CME stipend, but if not used by the end of the year, this money does not roll over to next year. In recognition of this “Use it or Lose it” event, the Core Content in Urgent Care Medicine is being discounted to the lowest price ever offered. For one month only, AAFP and UCAOA members can purchase the program for $895 (a $500 discount), and non-members can purchase for $1095 (a $300 discount). Prospective learners can go to www.UrgentCareCME.com
for additional details about the program and to view a sample video lecture.
Since the Core Content in Urgent Care Medicine is an online university, the program can be viewed from any computer with a high-speed internet connection. A flash drive with all the video content is also included for fast and portable access. "Urgent care providers can now get all of their CME credits at home or during down time at the office instead of incurring travel costs for conferences," says program director, Dr. Lee Resnick.
There are over 50 lectures divided into 7 modules for a total of 66 hours of CME (AMA Category 1 and/or AAFP Prescribed). According to Dr. Resnick, the Core Content in Urgent Care Medicine is only "urgent care focused," so it is always "relevant," and with over 2500 learners worldwide, "tested."
A primary focus of the program is to identify "what not to miss, and how not to miss it" for each topic, with risk management cases embedded in nearly all the lectures to illustrate how to avoid trouble.
Best practice standards and guidelines (Asthma, ACOEM, SSTI, Croup, etc), are embedded into each of the lectures, and as part of re-accreditation (every 2-3 years), and periodically in between, any updates to the guidelines will be posted on the online university.
Interestingly, the Core Content in Urgent Care Medicine curriculum is modeled after the only clinical fellowships in urgent care medicine and was designed specifically for the unique challenges of urgent care practice.
Dr. Resnick says, "Great effort has been made to create a program that highlights the key core competencies of urgent care medicine, with a focus on red flags, diagnostics, disposition management and follow-up management. The core content CME program also offers the unique opportunity for providing a standard level of care throughout an organization based on 'best practices' for the discipline."
This offer is only good for one month. Prospective learners can go to the online university for updates and more information: www.UrgentCareCME.com.
