I received a pamphlet the other day from Empire Medical Training, touting Medical Procedures for the Primary Care Physician. They have various procedure-based workshops, such as pain management, cosmetic procedures, and dermatologic procedures. It all sounds great – certainly adding some procedures will increase the amount of variety I see every day. I’m thinking of doing a pain management workshop – they train you in facet joint injections, trigger point injections, and sacroiliac joint injections, amongst others. Hopefully I’ll be able to do some things in the office that I would normally refer out.
Anyone have any experience with these kind of workshops, and have they found it useful in their practice?
