Introduced at the EDS Conference in Las Vegas

About this program.

We have had over 1200 participants since we introduced the program! 

The Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes Physician CME Education Program is the first online Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes course accredited to provide continuing education credits. This free program will cover the fundamental principles for the diagnosis, classification, and treatment of Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes (EDS) and related disorders as well as associated conditions.

Many medical disciplines encounter patients with Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes and related disorders and misunderstandings regarding these conditions are still prevalent despite many recent advances in the field.

Program Focus

The focus of this program is on a basic understanding of these complex, genetic disorders that are often present with a diversity of symptoms which make diagnosis challenging.  Also, the severity of EDS and related disorders varies tremendously from mild to severely disabling symptoms. Recognition is critical as the morbidity and mortality can be very significant without proper treatment. This EDS CME program includes information for the care of patients from infancy through adulthood.

This course is multidisciplinary and will eventually include learning modules presented by experts in the following medical disciplines: Genetics, Radiology, Neurology, Dermatology, Cardiology, Dentistry, Gastroenterology, Neurology, Pain Management, Anesthesiology, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Physical Therapy, Pediatrics, Psychology, and Orthopedics.

The EDS CME Physician Education Program is designed to provide physicians with a general understanding of Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes and related disorders as well as associated conditions, their diversity, and the latest in diagnosing and treatment options.
