  9. Hello all, For any physicians that are interested, there are 2 free webinars available for free CME hours. The first one describes how the updated ACC/AHA guidelines for the management of STEMI and NSTEMI differ from previous guidelines. This opportunity is aimed towards those that work in emergency medicine and cardiology. You can register at http://www.stemicme.com The second goes over new techniques being developed to treat ITP and ways doctors are currently providing better care for their patients. This one is aimed towards hematologists and oncologists. You can register at http://www.itp-cme.com I'm a physician myself and attended both of these seminars. They're informative and extremely flexible.
  10. Hi everyone! I wanted to share an online medical education course I just completed. CME-University is hosting a free online cardiology CME which reviews the Updated STEMI & NSTEMI guidelines. In addition, it discusses ways to dose antiplatelet and anticoagulant therapy to maximize efficacy and minimize bleeding risks for those undergoing PCI and for those undergoing fibrinolysis. I’ve recently completed this and found it was truly one of the most useful and relevant courses available. The course is for cardiologists, emergency physicians, nurses and nurse practitioners, hospitalists, physician assistants and anyone else with an interest in acute coronary syndromes (ACS) treatment and is for 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit. Here is the CME: http://www.stemicme.com
  11. I found a great Oncology CME webcast to earn some CME Credits for FREE. http://www.cmenetworks.com/cme/10821/1/Online-Oncology-CME-Personalized-Therapies-for-Breast-Cancer-Oncology-Learning-Center-March-9-2009---March-9-2010/Page1.html This webcast covers the new concept in the diagnosis and treatment for breast cancer, integrating molecular diagnostics, personalized surgical and radiation techniques and chemotherapy, hormonal therapy and targeted therapeutics for improving breast cancer patient care.
  12. Hi, I found this great activity online to earn Rheumatology CME credit. http://www.cmenetworks.com/cme/10845/1/Continuing-Medical-Education-Rheumatology-CME-2009-Latest-Developments-in-Biologics-for-Rheumatoid-Arthritis-From-Science-to-Practice-Scientific-Congress-Update-December-19-2008---December-18-2009/Page1.html This one hour highlight review is provided by Scientific Congress Updates. The video covers some interesting topics like the latest clinical advances in use of biologics in the treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis. Make sure you watch the whole video so you won’t miss it and the CME credit! John
  13. I highly recommend AAFP’s National Conference of Family Medicine Residents & Medical Students. It’s coming up soon on 7/29-8/1, 2009. http://www.cmenetworks.com/cme/9181/1/Continuing-Medical-Education-Family-Medicine-CME-2009-2009-National-Conference-of-Family-Medicine-Residents-amp-Medical-Students-American-Academy-of-Family-Physicians-AAFP-Kansas-City-MO-July-29-August-01-2009/Page1.html The registration fee includes lectures, workshops, meal vouchers, and more. I went to AAFP’s National Conference last year and met several influential family physicians and professors.
  14. I was searching for some CME online and found a great upcoming neurology in clinical practice course by Mayo Clinic at http://www.cmenetworks.com/cme/10641/1/Continuing-Medical-Education-Neurology-CME-Neurology-in-Clinical-Practice-Mayo-Clinic-Chicago-IL-July-16---18-2009/Page1.html The course is coming up soon on July 16 – 18 2009 so I thought I’d give everyone a heads up. I’ve attended Mayo’s courses before and found it’s pretty worthwhile because of the emphasis on case-based presentations and coverage of recent advances.
