Most clinicians experience the overwhelming task of reserving specific time to enhance their clinical knowledge while juggling their busy work schedule and personal life. Through personal experience as a resident, Eric Lentsch, MD, an assistant professor of the Medical University of South Carolina, recognized that the daunting task of "fitting learning in" could be achieved with setting aside a few minutes to answer one question per day. During his academic career, Dr. Lentsch emailed daily questions and subsequent answers to his residents (hence the development of the term "E-Pimp"). Over time, this educational exchange became increasingly popular. Based on the overwhelmingly positive response, Dr. Lentsche created the Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery E-Pimp educational program and expanded this service to ENT students, physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners and physician assistants around the country.
Through the Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery E-Pimp, you can receive:
Free educational tool: A daily question, taken from the current literature or knowledge base, is sent via email to subscribers. On the subsequent day, the answer is provided along with supporting data from current literature.
24 CME credits per year: Through a similar concept as the educational tool, the E-Pimp program offers ENT related topics on current literature, guidelines, and technology for CME credit that you will receive from the comfort of your personal computer. This service is offered at a discounted rate of $100 for SPAO members.
