FMX CME Opportunities

Stay sharp with essential CME.

Everything changes, including health care, patient expectations, treatment guidelines, and most certainly technology. How you practice family medicine must evolve too.

FMX CME is designed by family physicians for family physicians to keep you current in a world of change. Attend in-depth sessions focused on family medicine and based on evidence. Expect to earn a lot of CME in a short amount of time.

2015 FMX CME session topics

Review CME session topics organized by body system, patient-based and population-based care, and procedural skills. Choose from 60 core topics identified by your peers as essential to the practice of family medicine. Plan also to attend some of the almost 40 unique topics that cover timely issues and new research, bridge performance gaps, and address attendee interest.

Clinical Procedural Workshops

FMX offers hands-on clinical procedural courses presented by expert faculty. These sessions are designed to enhance skills-based competencies. New sessions in 2015 include Ultrasound-Guided Joint Injection Overview and OB-Gyn Ultrasound at the Point of Care: An Overview Options.

Separate fee and registration required.

Out and Abouts

Out-and-About sessions are designed to provide you with a learning opportunity that extends beyond the convention center. You will have the opportunity to travel off the convention site to a regionally local destination, where you can continue to learn more about topics associated with several interactive lecture sessions.

Posters

Review the latest research in family medicine, gain resources for patient education, and earn CME credit. Get deeper insight when you meet with the presenters.

Submission deadline to present a poster is April 30.

Tracks

The Track concept is designed to provide you a way to self-select an intensive curricular track that includes interactive lectures presented in a 3.5 hour block. Enjoy the opportunity to engage in small group, peer-to-peer learning with feedback from expert faculty. Each Track consists of three topics with a unifying theme. All Tracks will provide a Translation to PracticeTM opportunity. Seating is limited.

The seven Track themes for 2015 are:

  • Hospital Medicine
  • Oncology
  • Childhood
  • Practice Pearls
  • Motivational Interviewing
  • Practice Management
  • Direct Primary Care

Problem-Based Learning

These case discussion sessions help you incorporate new knowledge with prior experiences. Apply and practice key concepts from associated lecture sessions. Team up with other attendees in small groups to collaboratively work through challenging case studies and receive feedback from expert faculty.

All PBL sessions will provide a Translation to PracticeTM opportunity.

PBLs in 2015 will each cover a specific topic and be offered twice. The 2015 PBLs include:

  • Musculoskeletal Exam Techniques
  • Anticoagulation
  • Adult and Elderly Hypertension
  • Diabetes Complications
  • Evidence-Based Treatment of Lower Extremity Injuries
  • Acute Coronary Syndrome and Angina

Learning Centers

Get interactive in this unique learning environment. You can check-in and begin your experience at any time during CME hours. Live patient learning sessions will be featured, where small groups of participants will watch and participate in a live interaction between the doctor and a simulated standardized patient.  The education is self-paced and you can start and stop at your leisure.
