Continuous education online via Winglet with 3 CME points

From Bauerfeind Life on 20.03.2024

When sports medicine rescues careers, it is usually the knee that is affected. A digital expert panel on Winglet is currently available for information about conservative and minimally invasive treatment options for knee injuries. The continuing education event The Athlete’s Knee supported by Bauerfeind is available on the online platform as a recording and can be used until December 14, 2024 to obtain 3 CME points. The sports medicine presentations in German are available with simultaneous interpretation into English.

This 90-minute continuing education event will be of interest to anyone treating patients who are physically active, and is aimed at

  • medical specialists from the fields of orthopedics, surgery, and sports medicine
  • specialists in physical and rehabilitative medicine
  • general practitioners and specialists in internal medicine (APIs) with an additional qualification in sports medicine

Interested parties can register free of charge on the Winglet platform if they are not already signed up and view the continuing education event through video-on-demand.

Physicians based in Germany have the option to complete the corresponding knowledge quiz for a fee of 29 euros and obtain 3 CME points. Physicians who are not situated in Germany can hand in their certificate to a local medical association or similar institution for the recognition of credits.
