ARRS GoldMiner® CME
Have you used GoldMiner?
This is a great tool to use in your
daily practice. With ARRS
GoldMiner, members have instant access to more than 345,500 images from 260 peer-reviewed journals. This online resource allows
image searches by findings, anatomy, imaging technique, patient
age, and gender.
ARRS members have exclusive access to ARRS GoldMiner
CME, which allows you to earn 0.5 CME credits for each self-directed online search conducted through GoldMiner. Members
who use their ARRS login and password earn credit at the point
of care through ARRS GoldMiner CME.
Many ARRS members are frequent users of GoldMiner and
find it both effective and easy to use. For instance, radiologist
Philip Keith, of Neenah, WI, who’s earned 44.5 CME credits
through GoldMiner, says, “My experience has been terrific. I am
extremely busy at home with three young kids, and if I can get
CME for the research I do during the course of my workday, it is
a huge bonus. This is the most sensible way to get CME I can
think of. Rather than having to go to a conference or taking time
to watch DVDs, I can get at least a portion of my studying done
while using the information—and likely will remember it better
because I am using the knowledge at the time.”
While John Wohlwend, of Henderson, NV, who’s earned 89.5
CMEs through GoldMiner, simply states, “It lets me brush up or
research any topic I see fit, whenever it is convenient for me. I will
continue to use it for that reason. I have already recommended
and will continue to recommend it for its flexibility.”
