SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) October 02, 2019
Each year the California Society of Addiction Medicine (CSAM) presents one of the most highly respected medical conferences for building clinical expertise in the treatment of substance use disorders, attracting a national audience. Following its recent conference September 4-7, 2019 in Anaheim, CA, CSAM launched two new online courses for clinicians looking to build clinical expertise or prepare to take the Addiction Medicine Board Certification Exam administered by the American Board of Preventive Medicine (ABPM): https://www.theabpm.org/
CSAM's new on-demand resources include:
- Recorded presentations from the CSAM Addiction Medicine Review Course held September 4-7, 2019 in Anaheim, CA are available online providing an in-depth overview of the essentials for treating addicted patients, from basic epidemiology, pharmacology, and neurobiology to the challenge of identifying dependent or at-risk patients across many different treatment settings (emergency rooms, intensive care units, private practice). Participants will come away with practical knowledge that can be applied to real-world situations, as well as help them study for the ABPM Board Exam in Addiction Medicine.
- Designed specifically for those taking the Addiction Medicine Board Exam from the ABPM, the CSAM Board Exam Preparation Track helps test-takers focus on high-yield concepts and successful study methods. It includes 13 Board Exam Prep Track Videos from the CSAM Addiction Medicine Review Course held in Anaheim, a total of 7 hours of practice test questions, with explanations of the correct answers. This course also includes access to a streamlined Question Bank featuring nearly 400 updated board-style questions with feedback and/or references for each, organized by topic areas similar to those on the ABPM exam.
