What Your Colleagues Are Saying


– Love the format of the course with lectures and ton of cases to work through. Far and away the most productive CME I’ve done.

– The format utilized at the Education Center is, hands down, the most effective way to learn and far superior to standard review courses.

– Outstanding program! Very valuable training and experience. Definitely worth the cost.

– Great course! Good mix of real cases, lectures and access to experts. Far more fruitful than purely lecture-based CME courses. Would definitely return for another course topic in the future.
