CME on Your Terms – The Osler Institute utilized state of the art equipment to record our Live September 2018 comprehensive Surgical Critical Care Review Course and bring it to you! These Video/Audio files are stored “in the cloud” so you can stream them anywhere, anytime, as long as you have an internet connection, watch or listen to on your phone, computer – your learning experience is almost like being at the live activity, but without travel costs and time away from your practice. Included with each online review is a downloadable copy of the syllabus that corresponds to the Video/Audio lectures for your use while viewing or as a free-standing study or clinical practice guide.

This comprehensive review is designed to update your clinical knowledge-base as well as to help you pass your Surgical Critical Care Certifying Exam.  Emphasis is on evidence-based medicine and board-relevant standards of care, incorporating current best practice concepts, surgical approaches, preoperative evaluation, and clinical follow-up strategies.  As a result, it provides a good review for your ABS sub-specialty exam as well as providing a thorough Surgical Critical Care review for physicians in practice. Many of our previous learners found the course provided them with improved diagnostic and management strategies, a better understanding of the best surgical approach for the principle areas covered by Critical Care Surgeons, and helped them recognize areas of weakness for self-study.  You will also come away with valuable insights and practical tips to immediately apply to your own practice.
