Continuing Medical Education Lecture
Designed for Your Hospial Medical Staff
Available for a Reasonable Fee through the AAHC
This lecture is designed to educate hospital physicians and adminstrators about chiropractors and their role in the hospital setting. The physicians will benefit by obtaining CME credits arranged through your hospital while they learn how chiropractors can help their practice, their paitents, and the hospital.
A chiropractor, with years of hospital experience, will answer the most common physician questions before they are asked. The goal is to prevent the asking of cynical questions that can prejudice the medical staff regardless of the quality of the response.
This CME lecture covers topics that medical physicians need to know before they can feel comfortable inviting chiropractors into their institutions.
Contact Dr. Cerf via Email at firstname.lastname@example.org
to discuss how to arrange for a CME lecture at your local hospital.

The AAHC Hospital Protocols Seminar, the comprehensive two day course that leads to a Certificate of Completion is now worth 12 CE credits sponsored through NYCC.
September 2006: Members of the AAHC Executive Committee met with representatives from the New York State Chiropractic Association (NYSCA) to discuss how the AAHC can help them with their plan to obtain hospital privileges for New York State chiropractors.
The AAHC has already made inroads for New York chiropractors. Dr. Cerf was recently invited by the Director of Emergency Medicine, of a New York City hospital, to help develope an 'on-call' chiropractor program in their emergency department. Dr. Salamone is having ongoing conversations with top administrators of a large New York hospital chain.
Contact the AAHC to find out how the AAHC you can help you take the initial steps toward hospital privileges.
August 2006: AAHC had a regional meeting in Northern New Jersey
that lasted late into the evening and organized a plan to approach hospitals and hospital trade associations. Drs. Salamone and Cerf met with medical physicians and attorneys from the AAHC Advisory Board who offered guidance on how to best present the needs and benefits of chiropractic services delivered in the hospital setting. The advisors stressed the need for a unified and uniform approach to the pursuit of hospital privileges that will be respected by the medical community.
January 27, 2005: Dr. John Cerf and Dr. Brad Hays spoke about hospital chiropractic at the Annual ChiroCode Conference in Las Vegas, NV. Interested doctors can contact ChiroCode for a DVD recording of the conference.
The October 2004 certification seminar was a terrific success. It was attended by some of the top chiropractors in our field. It was a pleasure to meet Dr. Burl Pettibon originator of the Pettibon Method and Dr. C. Kevin Donovan, President of the Congress of Chiropractic State Associations. It was also a pleasure to meet a Dr. Jeffrey James who flew in from California to attend the seminar.
Dr. Joseph Salamone attended the AAHC booth at the Palmer Homecoming from August 12-14, 2004. Dr. Salamone tells us there was tremendous enthusiasm regarding hospital chiropractic practice. President Donald Kern of Palmer Chiropractic College expressed interest in working with the AAHC to help Palmer students obtain hospital practice experience. Of course, the process for any possible curriculum changes whether core, elective or continuing education involves faculty, committee and administrative review, as well as approval from the Board of Trustees. By providing chiropractic care in a hospital setting the students will learn the valuable contribution of chiropractic in a multidisciplinary care setting.
