ASM 2017: Earn Up to 32.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™

Monday, September 25, 2017

One of the best ways for Michigan physicians to learn the latest in clinical sciences and implement this knowledge into their everyday practice while earning up to 37.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™, is to attend MSMS Foundation's 152nd Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM). ASM will be held Tuesday through Saturday, October 24-28, at the Sheraton Detroit Novi.

"The Annual Scientific Meeting continues to grow every year," said David T. Walsworth, MD, an Ingham County primary care physician and 2017 ASM Planning Committee Chair. "This year we will offer two options to meet the Board of Medicine's (BOM) CME requirement for Pain and Symptom Management, as well as offer two FREE plenary sessions that meet the BOM's Human Trafficking and Medical Ethics requirements."

Top experts will present courses, such as "Update on Sports Concussions and Brain Health", "Principles for Safe Opioid Prescribing: Best Practices, Guidelines, and Regulations", "Power Ethics and Clinical Practice", "Health Technology: Making it Work for You, Not Against You", "Pediatric Emergencies: Legal Aspects", and many more.

In addition to these topics, participants also will be able to explore new developments in infectious diseases, women's health, dermatology, diabetes, and more.
