We’ve all been to CME conferences that left a bit to be desired. And we know what is a big difference-maker for dud CME conferences versus amazing, truly transformative ones…the speakers. So we’ve assembled an incredible team of emergency medicine superstars:
Kat has literally has taken her NP career by the reins, picking up her family and relocating to rural North Dakota to open a hospital clinic and be the primary providers in a 20-bed critical access hospital with a Level 5 ER. She has also served as an independent emergency room provider and hospitalist. Kat currently practicing in Memphis, Tennessee while pursuing her Doctorate of Nursing Practice with a Family Nurse Practitioner post certificate from the University of South Alabama. You might also catch her out for a run or riding her bike – Kat is an active triathlete.
Emergency medicine is Thomas Cooper’s passion, and he’s dedicated his life to it. He’s gone through the trenches, serving as a staff nurse in an urban emergency room in Tennessee following a nurse externship in a 16-bed cardiac ICU. Then he returned to school for his MSN in family practice while also teaching nationally for Hurst Review Services. After opening up a North Dakota clinic with his wife, Kat, Thomas also became dually certified as an acute care and family nurse practitioner, and received his Doctorate in nursing practice. Now, he’s dedicated his life to helping other NPs and advancing this incredible profession. He is an assistant professor with the University of Tennessee Health Science Center, an active member of the Tennessee Nurses Association, President of the Greater Memphis Area Advance Practice Nurses and he speaks nationally on emergency medicine topics.
We may be slightly biased, but John Bielinski is transforming CME and CME conferences. John is an international lecture on EM and extraordinary patient care, and recently spoke for National Geographic. An experienced medical provider with more than 20 years helping patients and teaching his peers, John believes that CME can and should be engaging, fun and useful. He has spent much of his career creating CME that delivers a profoundly transformative learning experience while helping medical providers offer more efficient care. John spent four years in the United States Marine Corps and is a Desert Shield Veteran.
