What is CORE?

CORE stands for CME4Life, One-day, Regional, Event.

This not just a random group of adjectives. Each one of these terms simply corresponds to the experience that you’ll get at our IMPACT Emergency Medicine CME conference. We show you a new way to learn medicine through the use of our “Active Engagement Learning” system. You’ll be actively participating in case study questions and competing with all of your colleagues in the course by using our Audience Response Units. Review the case, select your answer, analyze the class results, and learn the correct diagnosis under the guidance of John Bielnski, Jr. PA-C.

Awesome conference! One of the best I have attended. John was genuine and shared his experiences with us. He made learning the information fun. The mnemonics helped me learn the information quickly.Lynette B., November 2016

Fantastic, interactive, fly-by, fun learning experience. Thank you for offering this wonderful alternative to traditional courses. I learned so much and can’t wait to tell others about this.
