PHYSICIANS: The Harvard Medical School is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The Harvard Medical School designates this live activity for a maximum of 12.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada recognizes conferences and workshops held outside of Canada that are developed by a university, academy, hospital, specialty society or college as accredited group learning activities.

AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ claimed by physicians attending live events certified and organized in the United States for AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ can be claimed through the agreement on mutual recognition of credits between UEMS and AMA, considered as being equal to the European Continuous Medical Education Credits (ECMEC©) granted by the UEMS. One AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ is equivalent to one (1) hour of European EACCME Credit (ECMEC©), therefore up to 12.00 ECMEC© Credits are available. Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.

Information on the process of converting AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ to ECMECs® can be found at: www.eaccme.eu.

 *Note: AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ is calculated based on submission of a preliminary agenda and may be subject to change.


Disclosure Policy: Harvard Medical School (HMS) adheres to all ACCME Accreditation Criteria and Policies. It is HMS's policy that those who have influenced the content of a CME activity (e.g. planners, faculty, authors, reviewers and others) disclose all relevant financial relationships with commercial entities so that HMS may identify and resolve any conflicts of interest prior to the activity. These disclosures will be provided in the activity materials along with disclosure of any commercial support received for the activity. Additionally, faculty members have been instructed to disclose any limitations of data and unlabeled or investigational uses of products during their presentations.

Disclaimer:

CME activities sponsored by Harvard Medical School are offered solely for educational purposes and do not constitute any form of certification of competency. Practitioners should always consult additional sources of information and exercise their best professional judgment before making clinical decisions of any kind.

Event Overview
Welcome message:

Over the past decade, point-of-care musculoskeletal ultrasound (MSUS) has grown in use among all medical specialties, including rheumatology, sports medicine, and pediatrics. Musculoskeletal ultrasound is a highly valuable skill that has been shown to expedite the diagnosis and management of a variety of musculoskeletal conditions, improve procedural accuracy and safety, improve patient outcomes, and is of significantly less cost than other advanced imaging modalities. Sponsored by the Massachusetts General Hospital and Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital, and accredited by Harvard Medical School, the Musculoskeletal Ultrasound at the Point-of-Care Course is geared towards physicians and allied health professionals (nurse practitioners, physician assistants, physical and occupational therapists) learning to gain expertise in musculoskeletal ultrasound as part of their practice. Joint-based lectures and hands-on teaching with patient models will be provided by a nationally recognized group of faculty. The course consists of two days of live CME activities, utilizing the following educational formats:


Lectures by leading experts in the United States on topics pertaining to their special areas of interest;


Direct, hands-on learning in small groups with in-depth ultrasound scanning demonstrations, scanning of patient models with and without pathology, and utilization of a variety of commercially available ultrasound machines; and


Panel discussions in which presenters and instructors entertain questions solicited from the audience.
