Who should take this course? Physicians, Chiropractors, and Psychologists whose states* require impairment ratings based on the AMA Guides, 5th Edition, will find this course valuable.

Performing impairment is a skill which requires training and practice. You will receive in-depth review of the Principals of the Guides 5th edition that form the foundation for accurate impairment ratings and practice using case scenarios in multiple area, pain, upper and lower extremity, spine, and medical conditions that are frequently encountered when performing medical evaluations.

The trained evaluator can provide an accurate impairment rating that benefits the injured worker and moves a case towards resolution.
