Navigating Orthopedic CME Challenges: The Ultimate Guide

According to the National Library of Medicine, web-based learning platforms have rapidly gained popularity for resident education, and in a recent national survey of American orthopedic residents hoping to earn orthopedic CME credits, a web-based training resource was found to be the most commonly used educational resource used by 99.5 percent of respondents. Today, video-based surgical education has also grown dramatically in popularity with the advent of on-demand surgical video websites, which now host tens of thousands of surgical videos and have many surgeon users.

None of this surprises us at Skin, Bones, Hearts & Private Parts – a leading national provider of CME – as we’ve offered Online CME (and in-person CME conferences, too, of course) since the beginning! Orthopedics is a keystone of our curriculum, with evidence-based information on common orthopedic medical issues that leads to improved patient outcomes. Whether you travel to one of our destination locations or attend via our On-demand or Virtual Conference options, nationally accredited speakers provide training on issues commonly encountered by primary health care providers, such as flexor and extensor tendon injuries, finger fractures/dislocations, and much more.
