Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas, Inc. is providing support to Albert Einstein College of Medicine and the New Jersey Society of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation for a series of CME-accredited, ultrasound workshops as part of the UGPLearningHub educational platform. Supported by an educational grant and in-kind contribution of ultrasound machines by Konica Minolta Healthcare, participating physicians can receive up to 4 AMA PRA Category 1 credits from Albert Einstein College of Medicine.

Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Center for Continuing Medical Education, is one of the largest medical school-based CME accredited providers in the state of New York. In 2017, nearly 48,000 physicians and more than 26,000 allied healthcare professionals attended more than 700 national and international CME activities provided by Albert Einstein College of Medicine.

“By supporting Albert Einstein College of Medicine’s initiative to enhance patient care, UGPLearningHub programs can now offer physicians CME credits that will help advance their knowledge and expertise in MSK,” says Courtney Ernst, manager of ultrasound training and education, Konica Minolta Healthcare. “While ultrasound-guidance is an essential tool for MSK practitioners performing these procedures, operating an ultrasound system is highly dependent on the user’s skill and experience.”

“Proficiency in ultrasound-guidance is a learn by doing process, and therefore Konica Minolta is dedicated to supporting education and hands-on workshops that will further advance the availability and quality of these procedures,” Ernst adds. The next CME-accredited ultrasound workshop in 2019 will be held in late January.
