Why Multiple Editions?
Our standard course is the live, 17 hour, 2 day conference available throughout the year. However, different States and their regulatory boards mandate different educational requirements as part of their disciplinary orders.
To adapt to these requirements for course approval, PBI and the University of California, Irvine School of Medicine have pioneered the development of the PBI-50 Modular CME System, which allows us to link various courses and sub-components (modules) to create different educational programs tailored to the needs of all fifty States. Bundling various courses into customized programs allows us to offer superior education for less cost to you. The end result is the most cost-effective boundary /ethics/ medical record keeping education in the country.
