For many, fall signals the start of a new school year. With the change in temperature comes returning to the classroom and hitting the books. Whether you’re back in school or sending your little ones off to class, this time of year serves as a reminder that it is never too late to focus on personal and professional growth.

At BSM, we are particularly passionate about aiding professional growth by providing staff training and development tools. We understand it can be difficult for busy ophthalmic professionals to take time away from the office to attend necessary training sessions. This is why we developed BSM Connection® for Ophthalmology, an online resource that offers continuing education that can be used anytime, anywhere.

Since 2010, BSM Connection has been offering online training and distance learning courses to ophthalmic practices across the United States. Recently, we hit a major milestone — the completion of 1 million distance learning courses! With more than 70,000 ophthalmic administrators and staff regularly using our online platform, more courses are being completed every day. Clearly, our members take pride in furthering their professional education, and we are thrilled that our distance learning courses allow them to achieve their own personal goals.

A brief overview of the distance learning center starts at the 2:24 marker.

Currently, BSM Connection offers more than 120 online distance learning courses on a variety of topics, including regulatory and compliance, customer service, ophthalmic knowledge, and optical operations (to name a few). Many of these courses qualify for JCAHPO, ABO/NCLE, COE, and CPSS continuing education credit hours.

BSM’s strong belief that training is important at every level of an organization has resulted in our ever-growing distance learning library, which offers a variety of practical courses for administrators, front desk staff, business office personnel, and clinical staff. Additionally, one BSM Connection membership allows every staff member within a practice unlimited access. Members can pick and choose courses based on their areas of interest or expertise and learn at their own pace.

To ensure our BSM Connection members have access to the most current training topics, we regularly add to and update our industry-specific courses. Some recent course additions include “Ophthalmic Plastic Surgery: Functional Oculoplastics” (JCAHPO-accredited) and “Compliance as Preventative Medicine: How to Implement a Practice-specific Plan.” Courses coming soon are “Understanding Fraud, Waste, and Abuse: Training for Employees in a Health Care Setting”; “Ins and Outs of Intravitreal Injections … What’s the Consensus Protocol”; and “Goldmann Perimetry.”

Let us help your ophthalmic practice reach new heights by providing continued staff education, as we have for so many others. Our goal is providing practical training and development solutions, so you can focus on other priorities of your busy practice. Start using your BSM Connection membership to its fullest today!
