I LEARNED COX® TECHNIC IN SCHOOL. I WOULD LIKE TO JUST HAVE A HANDS-ON REFRESHER. WHAT IS THE BEST CHOICE?— The MINI-WORKSHOPSoffered by private, certified chiropractors are great for JUST HANDS-ON. The instructors will work with you to hone your application skills and discuss clinical incorporation of the technique. I JUST WANT TO LEARN A LITTLE BIT ABOUT COX® TECHNIC. HOW CAN I DO THAT?— Attending any Part I or II or III course for 12 hours will give you a good glimpse into the research support, clinical application and outcomes you can expect using Cox® Technic. AM I EXEMPT FROM PART 1?— Students and graduates who pass a qualified course on campuses which offer Cox® Technic courses are exempt from taking Part I if they took & passed a Cox® course taught by a certified instructor in school. The course syllabus must also be on file. Call 1-800-441-5571 to confirm. WHAT IS THE CERTIFICATION EXAMINATION? HOW DO I PREPARE?— The exam is a case review with questions about two cases and a practical exam during which you will be expected to recognize by symptomatology the patients’ conditions demanding protocol 1 or protocol 2. You will apply each protocol correctly to the correct patient type. Review Chapter 9 in the Cox Low Back Paintextbook (6th edition) and protocol notes from the seminar. HOW CAN I LEARN MORE ABOUT CERVICAL SPINE TECHNIQUE?— Cervical Spine is introduced at Part I and built on with more hands-on at Part II. Clinical patient cases are presented at (Fort Wayne-based) Part III courses. On occasion, a scheduled weekend Part III course will focus on cervical spine. WILL I GET CE HOURS?— National University of Health Sciences is the continuing education entity. CE for all 50 states for Part I & Part II Courses are applied. CE credit is not guaranteed. Check with your state board to confirm hours. What is the Certification Process?— Attend one Part I course & one Part II course and pass the certification exam (only offered at Part II). IS PART II OFFERED ANYWHERE ELSE?— No, Part II is offered only on campus at National University of Health Sciences. What are the Benefits of Certification? ·Confidence in caring for the severe and routine low back patients. Don’t fear the antalgic sciatic patient. ·Inclusion in the referral directory ·Prestige of public and professional positioning as the low back doctor ·Refer with confidence to fellow physicians who treat similarly to you. ·Access and permission to use specially developed marketing materials. I AM CERTIFIED BUT NOT ON THE ACTIVE LIST. WHY?HOW CAN I GET RE-CERTIFIED? By 1/1/07, all certified physicians (who were certified prior to 1/1/04) needed to re-certify to remain on the “actively certified” list of physicians. Emails and postal service notices were sent 4 times prior to this date.Recertification can be attained via one of these methods: ·Attend one certification course (either Part I or Part II or Part III co-sponsored with NUHS - Click here for dates/locations.) ·Write a patient case report (Click here to see details and guidelines.) ·Attend a “SPECIAL COURSE” designated “re-certification qualified” (like Maui or other locale) which may require a case report & presentation. For all physicians re-certified and those certified after 1/1/04, re-certification is required every two years to maintain your listing on the “actively certified” referral list. Otherwise your listing is moved to “inactive”. If we lose touch with you, mail is returned, you are put on the LOST list. Check this periodically to be sure we haven’t “lost” you. Thank you!
