Earning credits for learning about liability


Here's an interesting perspective from AMed News: Virginia law school gives doctors new perspective on liability litigation.

    Richard Rosenthal, MD, is passionate about the importance of understanding medical liability law, a transformation that took place while attending a novel six-session course offered by the University of Richmond School of Law in Virginia.

    The school gives practicing physicians a chance to attend legal lectures with law students -- and earn up to 27 continuing medical education credits -- for participating in the Saturday classes, "Medical Malpractice Law and Litigation." A lineup of guest speakers, including plaintiff attorneys, especially adds to the doctors' experience.

Sadly, the need for this type of education is likely to continue growing, isn't it?
