    • In my residency I never asked if the typical weekly conference counted towards CME.  I will say that during a few grand rounds or co-conferneces with groups like trauma, they'd hand out a CME survey and sign in sheet.  I think that might be the only way that they can track on their end this sort of thing.  I personally just made a log in for uptodate whenever I had on-the-job searches, and each search gives you 1/2 point of CME.  After about 3 months I had enough CME logged to cover the entire 2 year requirement.  Easiest way to do it, in my opinion.  You also won't have to organize a million tiny confirmation receipts from all of the conferences you went to... uptodate just bundles it all into one confirmation for the entire time.  
    • Hey I learned some things too!  I hadn't thought of some of those but they are all great answers.  This case happened to be a hollow viscous injury, which is notoriously difficult to diagnose in blunt trauma because of the low sensitivity on CT scan.  The thought is that the traumatic perforation causes the bowels to spasm and it won't actually spill bowel contents until several hours later.  The trauma surgeon evaluated this patient, admitted them for serial exams, and ended up taking them to the OR several hours later since the patient developed worsening peritoneal signs.  Don't be fooled by the negative CT if they have real tenderness / guarding!  
    • Hello! How do you like it ABU? Also, hows living in the area?
    • I live in Anacortes, which is the first island of Washington's San Juan Island chain. A great place to live. We have had several PA jobs, some closed as no applicants came forward. The hospital has one posted now (below). If you have a strong interest in interventional medicine, I know of a possible second one.   https://pm.healthcaresource.com/cs/islandhospital#/job/604
