Straight from a CME Conference Attendee’s Mouth: Why Skin Bones is a Great Choice

Choosing a CME provider is an important decision – you need CME credits, sure, but you want quality content, engaging presentations, and topics that fit your field of study, whether you plan to earn CME online or at an in-person CME conference. At Skin, Bones, Hearts & Private Parts, we know those are priorities for all of our attendees, including physicians, physician assistants (PAs), nurse practitioners (NPs) or registered nurses (RNs). We also think that having fun is important, and since our founding have made destination locations part of our brand.

But don’t just take our word for it: Check out our testimonials page, where you can hear for yourself why we’re different and why practitioners across the country call our program the best CME event they’ve ever attended.

Earning CME – and Learning!

Ashley Valentine, a PA specializing in pediatric plastic surgery, said, “I chose a Skin, Bones CME Conference because I’m retaking my Boards, and because I’m in a highly specialized field, I needed more updates and background on some of the primary care topics that I don’t see routinely due to my sub-specialized practice. The speakers were all really great, very personable and very interactive, and it felt like a conversation, which I find so conducive to learning. Everything really stuck with me, and I would absolutely recommend this conference; it’s a great environment to learn in!”

Valentine’s observation that content “stuck” is an important one; how can practitioners hope to improve patient care through CME, for example, if they don’t retain newly obtained knowledge? In a paper shared by the National Library of Medicine, based on analysis of 28 studies by the Johns Hopkins Evidence-based Practice Centre assessing the knowledge gained by specialists through CME, an impressive 79 percent of clinicians demonstrated an improvement in knowledge after CME, with 68 percent demonstrating long-term knowledge retention!

“This is my third [Skin, Bones, Hearts & Private Parts] CME Conference,” added Meredith Williams, a PA from Jacksonville, FL. “I like this conference because it prepares me so well for my re-certifications and keeps me up-to-date on things I may have forgotten since I’ve been doing orthopedic surgery for 25 years!”
