    Course Summary

    Length: Course is 1 day, beginning at 8:00 a.m. and concluding at 5:00 p.m.

    Format: Lecture/discussion, case studies, panel, questions and answers.

    Syllabus: A hard copy of the course syllabus will be distributed onsite, when registrants check-in for the course.

    Attendees are advised to bring their own copies of the AMA Guides book (6th Edition) with them to the course. ACOEM does not provide copies of the AMA Guides book.

    Description: The course focuses on the three musculoskeletal chapters of the AMA Guides (Upper Extremity, Lower Extremity and Spine). Each chapter will be presented with a brief lecture, followed by case presentations studied in small-group formats. Faculty will guide participants through the cases, highlighting areas where the 6th edition applications can be particularly challenging. Take advantage of this unique opportunity to experience AMA Guides training through a new approach to learning.

    Learning Objectives
    Upon completion of this educational activity, learners should be able to:

    • Evaluate multiple organ systems.
    • Apply the 6th Edition of the AMA Guides to worker impairment evaluations.
    • Derive an accurate impairment rating.

    Target Audience
    This course would appeal to both the new learner of the Guides (those physicians who have never received training and those who desire to add impairment evaluations to their menu of services) and the physician who would like a refresher course or a new approach to applying the Guides information to impairment evaluations.
