Online CME Program - Injuries in Athletes

The Cobb Institute is pleased to bring you another online CME program that addresses the need for ongoing education in a comfortable, user friendly environment. You can work on the CME program at your convenience from office, home or while out of town. The choice is yours alone. The majority of the online CME programs are sponsored and therefore of no cost to you but some require a modest fee. We want to make both options available to you and also to assure you that the array of content offered meets your CME needs.

Currently the newest addition this week is from the orthopedic CME offering and can be found by clicking this link. Webinar: AAOS/AOFAS Lisfranc Injuries in Athletes, click here to view more.
