					The Core Content in Urgent Care Medicine, a Video CME Program, Offers End
of Year Discount to Encourage Physicians to Use Their CME Stipends Before
They Expire

The Core Content in Urgent Care Medicine, a 60 hour video CME program, is offering an end of
year discount to encourage physicians to use their CME stipends before they expire. As part of this
"Use it or Lose it" event, the program will be discounted significantly, with savings of up to $500
off.

Cleveland, OH, November 10, 2013 --(PR.com)-- The Core Content in Urgent Care Medicine, a 60 hour
video CME program, is having a “Use it or Lose it” event to encourage physicians to use their CME
stipend before it expires. Many physicians and physician extenders have a CME stipend, but if not used
by the end of the year, this money does not roll over to next year. In recognition of this “Use it or Lose it”
event, the Core Content in Urgent Care Medicine is being discounted to the lowest price ever offered. For
one month only, AAFP and UCAOA members can purchase the program for $895 (a $500 discount), and
non-members can purchase for $1095 (a $300 discount). Prospective learners can go to
www.UrgentCareCME.com for additional details about the program and to view a sample video lecture.

Since the Core Content in Urgent Care Medicine is an online university, the program can be viewed from
any computer with a high-speed internet connection. A flash drive with all the video content is also
included for fast and portable access. "Urgent care providers can now get all of their CME credits at home
or during down time at the office instead of incurring travel costs for conferences," says program director,
Dr. Lee Resnick.

There are over 50 lectures divided into 7 modules for a total of 66 hours of CME (AMA Category 1
and/or AAFP Prescribed). According to Dr. Resnick, the Core Content in Urgent Care Medicine is only
"urgent care focused," so it is always "relevant," and with over 2500 learners worldwide, "tested."

A primary focus of the program is to identify "what not to miss, and how not to miss it" for each topic,
with risk management cases embedded in nearly all the lectures to illustrate how to avoid trouble.

Best practice standards and guidelines (Asthma, ACOEM, SSTI, Croup, etc), are embedded into each of
the lectures, and as part of re-accreditation (every 2-3 years), and periodically in between, any updates to
the guidelines will be posted on the online university.

Interestingly, the Core Content in Urgent Care Medicine curriculum is modeled after the only clinical
fellowships in urgent care medicine and was designed specifically for the unique challenges of urgent
care practice.

Dr. Resnick says, "Great effort has been made to create a program that highlights the key core
competencies of urgent care medicine, with a focus on red flags, diagnostics, disposition management and
follow-up management. The core content CME program also offers the unique opportunity for providing
a standard level of care throughout an organization based on 'best practices' for the discipline."
