Medbridge with Mike Hopper

Houston is a major medical center.  there are many opportunities to get CEUs from some really great organizations like Houston Methodist, Memorial Hermann, Texas Children's, Airrosti and others.

But Athletic Trainers in some places have to drive a long way to get to a hospital or orthopedic doctor's office.

Workshops are great and even better when they are free (NATM Giveaways) but not always feasible.

I recommend a few free ways to get CEUs like:

  • TheATVantage – great podcast I personally listen to and have earned CEUs from
  • Gatorade great info, but quizzes are a little hard
  • Medco great info but again the quizzes can be combersome

Then ask Mike Hopper why and how he uses Medbridge to earn unlimited CEUs and build great Home Exercise Plans for his athletes.

To celebrate NATM and Athletic Trainers Medbridge and the Sports Medicine Broadcast are giving one subscriber who uses my referral link a second year free.  So if you sign up be sure to use my link or the promo code “TheSMB” to save and possibly double your savings.

MedBridge: is great for continuing education on a budget and a resource to build a great home exercise plan

Using Google drive makes sharing documents and data between co-workers super easy.  It has also saved me from having to carry a flash drive around or from being able to work from only one computer.

We also Use RankOneSport for our online physical forms, treatment logs and injury report forms which has been a huge time-saver.  this also has the emergency cards for the coaches to print and manage their own paperwork.
