This is the 4th episode in the Fracture Season of PEM Currents. You will learn about carpal fractures – especially the dreaded scaphoid fracture, metacarpal fractures, and fractures of the phalanges. 

I am now proud to offer CME through Cincinnati Children’s. To claim CME & ABP MOC Part 2, visit Cincinnati Children’s Online Courses and search ‘PEM Currents’.
