Webinar – Achieving Excellence as a California Evaluator

Achieving Excellence as a California Evaluator: Strengthening Your Foundation to Enhance Success

Please check the main page for the upcoming webinars in this series.

We are pleased to announce a series of webinars that is being offered through the California Society of Industrial Medicine and Surgery focused on performing quality evaluations, including the use of the Fifth Edition of the AMA Guides.

Although designed for physicians in California, physicians elsewhere will find the discussions of great interest. This is also highly recommended for other stakeholders (e.g., attorneys, claims professionals, and fact finders) located in California.

The sessions are held each Tuesday and Friday from 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm PT, starting January 8. The live programs are open without charge to all and CSIMS members have access to recorded sessions thereafter.
