Chicago, IL, United States, 2012/03/28 - The American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery's new online continuing medical education repository for doctors provides a central online solution for AACS members to view their Academy CMEs and also log their CMEs from other non-AACS educational events.
The American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery (AACS) has unveiled an online continuing medical education (CME) Repository for doctors, the only one of its kind in the field of cosmetic surgery. The AACS CME Repository provides a user-friendly, central online solution for AACS Members to view their Academy CMEs and also log their CMEs from other non-AACS educational events. Now all of a doctor’s CME activities can be logged, tracked, printed and reported in one convenient and secure location that is accessed from the Academy’s website, cosmeticsurgery.org
“The Academy continually strives to provide members with the latest tools, resources and technology to keep their practice on the cutting edge,” said Dr. Gerald Edds, President of the AACS. “The CME Repository provides a convenient and accurate online tool to make tracking CME easy, and is a welcome addition to our already robust member benefits package.”
The AACS CME Repository was beta-tested by Drs. Robert Burke, Trustee and Joseph Niamtu, who are long time Academy Members and regarded as among the most tech savvy. “This is a highly anticipated cutting-edge technology tool for cosmetic surgeons that will simplify the process of logging and reporting CME Credits,” said Dr. Burke.
“The Repository offers a centralized solution to CME tracking. It offers robust features, but is also user-friendly, ensuring it is both accurate and fast to accommodate the busy schedule of a cosmetic surgeon,” added Dr. Joseph Niamtu.
The CME Repository represents the latest in a string of technological advances introduced by the Academy over the past year, including a new mobile app, job board and fully digital medical journal,“The American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery.” The Academy continues to move forward with new technology that will assist in creating awareness of the Academy globally and furthering its mission of advancing the specialty of cosmetic surgery and quality patient care.
“The AACS CME Repository helps further establish the Academy as the one-stop shop for professionals in the field of cosmetic surgery,” said Dr. Edds. “From education to the latest information and research to premier online tools – all to help our members and their practices succeed while maintaining the highest level of quality patient care.”
