Holly Benjamin, MD, FACSM CJSM Associate Editor for CME


I have special news to share with you today.

CJSM is offering CME for the first time.  We’re 25 years old and proving that you can teach an old dog (in journal years) new tricks.

The official announcement reads:

“As the official journal of AMSSM, CJSM’s Editor in Chief Christopher Hughes, MBBS, MSc is pleased to announce CME as a new component of the journal. In addition to having free access to all CJSM publications, members will now begin to see CME modules on line that are tied to key publications. The inaugural CME module is FREE and focuses on Exercise Associated Hyponatremia (EAH). This review article appeared in the July issue. For those that have read the article or who find this topic of interest, please complete the 10 question CME module designed to enhance the learning and understanding of the topic as well as earn one Category One CME credit that will be issued after the test is graded with a passing grade. As the CJSM CME section develops, more learning opportunities will be available. The CJSM CME learning module may be accessed here.  We would like to hear your feedback on the module. Please send your feedback to the CJSM Associate Editor for CME, Holly Benjamin:”

Some of this blog’s readers may remember the announcement made when Dr. Benjamin was named an Associate Editor.  She has been busily working on the format and other details of this ongoing offering, with a special focus on getting the first module up and running. For this initial offering, she has picked a great topic with EAH.  The Statement of the 3rd International Exercise-Associated Hyponatremia Consensus Development Conference was one of CJSM’s most popular offerings in 2015.  Our podcast with the lead author, Tamara Hew-Butler DPM, PhD was, likewise, enormously popular.  And the hashtags #Drink2Thirst & #DrinkToThirst were trending this summer on social media, reminders that the value of hydration has limits, and that EAH is an underappreciated danger of overhydration.

CJSM & EAH were even breaking news in Vietnam (let me know if you can read this article)!

2016 is still young, but already our second issue of the year is about to be published and we have this new CME offering.  It’s promising to be a very good year.

P.S. Sept 2016 addendum:  check out ALL our CME offerings here

    That’s awesome! How about making it available for AAFP CME credit? (Especially since a significant proportion of AMSSM has to utilize the AAFP for CME.) Either way, it’s great to have any sort of PCSM-focused CME option available.
