Strengthen Your Care, Help Your Patients Play at Their Best

Designed to help family physicians better diagnose and treat musculoskeletal injuries, the AAFP’s Musculoskeletal and Sports Care Self-Study Package is an evidence-based learning solution built to help you boost your ability to evaluate injured bones or soft tissue to determine the stage and severity of injury and increase your repertoire of physical examination techniques including range of motion, bone alignment, and swelling. The package also includes guidance to promote healthy lifestyle for all types of patients, including geriatric and those living with chronic disease all on a schedule that works best for you—in a variety of formats.

This dynamic, 22-session video self-study was recorded from the AAFP Musculoskeletal and Sports Care live course. Use it to better prepare for Sports Medicine module of the ABFM recertification examination as well as the certification/recertification examination for the Certificate of Added Qualifications (CAQ) in Sports Medicine.
