... self-assessment as an important learning tool.
Newark, Delaware (PRWEB) June 29, 2015
With Urgent Care Medicine now serving a vital role in our health care system, Exam Master® announces a partnership with the American Board of Urgent Care Medicine and the Medical Society of Delaware to provide its latest professional development resource that brings AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ to Urgent Care physicians and health care professionals.
According to Matthew Bader, Exam Master CEO and President, “This resource is the first of a number of continuing education resources we hope to provide that utilize self-assessment as an important learning tool. We look forward to building on our partner relationships to further our goal of supporting continuing education for as many health professionals as possible.”
Urgent Care Medicine continues to play an increasingly important role in the delivery of health care services. With more than 20,000 practitioners operating in over 9,000 centers, Americans are increasingly choosing Urgent Care centers as an alternative to the emergency room for more convenient access to care.
“The American Board of Urgent Care Medicine is pleased to partner with Exam Master and the Medical Society of Delaware to bring this effective and useful educational tool to Urgent Care professionals,” said Franz Ritucci, M.D., ABUCM President. “The goal is to offer to Urgent Care practitioners topics of review that will re-enforce and enhance the fund of knowledge that Urgent Care practitioners utilize in their practice.”
“The Medical Society of Delaware (MSD) is a nationally accredited provider of continuing medical education with commendation, the highest level of certification for CME,” stated Hugh Bonner, MD, Chair of the Medical Society of Delaware Professional Education Committee. “Our collaboration with the American Board of Urgent Care Medicine and Exam Master demonstrates MSD’s continued commitment to high-quality professional education and our combined ability to provide a unique, accessible resource for urgent care health care professionals across the nation to advance patient care.”
This program will cover important topics UC practitioners need to know, provide opportunities for self-assessment and learning, and provide a fast, efficient format for earning CME credit.
