The AMA Guide to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment, 6th Edition has created a whole new paradigm in determining Whole Person Impairments (WPI). The criteria have changed as it is no longer allowable to utilize ranges of motion as criteria for impairment ratings.

This certification course covers all of the criteria needed along with the clinical rationale and training to understand the basics of the physiology and clinical interpretation required. The course also covers spine and neurological issues that are often seen in patients requiring impairment ratings for issues that transcend spine, which occur in the majority of spinal trauma cases.

This is a credentialing course where after completion you will be able to obtain a certificate of completion suitable for framing and displaying in your office. It is a 2 hour course. Where accepted nationally for online courses, this course offers 2 chiropractic continuing education credits certified by the New York State Department of Education.

The Personal Injury (PI) Bootcamp is a series of 7 different courses created to give the doctor in the trauma environment a broad background and credentials in determining causality, triaging and diagnosing the accident patient. The program also covers strategies on how to create paradigm shifts in the medical-legal community to have lawyers seek you out because, through clinical excellence, you are the best-of-the-best.


These courses are designed to help you understand the trauma patient from both a clinical aspect and from the medical-legal perspective. It guides you in documenting your care and conclusions as well as diagnosing through advanced imaging, neurodiagnostics and clinical evaluations. The courses also teach the doctor business protocols on how to use the laws in your state to ensure timely payment through effective documentation and how to deliver that documentation to third party payers.

The documentation protocols in this program has been reviewed by 10,000's of lawyers nationally and has been certified as admissible and complete for accurately reporting causality, bodily injury and functional loss. These are mandatory requirement for most states.  The Academy has worked tirelessly with lawyers nationwide to ensure quality reporting while maintaining ethical relationships.

This program has proven successful for over 20 years and underscores that advertising and marketing is a failed paradigm for successful personal injury practices. There is no substitute for clinical excellence and having your documentation in an admissible format.

This is a certification course where, upon completion, you will able to access certificates suitable for framing and displaying in your office. It is a 9 hour course done in 7 parts where the longest one is 2 hours.

Module #1: Personal Injury 101
Triaging and reporting while maintaining ethical medical-legal relationships

This is an Audio Only Program

Course Objective: This course gives you the rationale of why some doctors have huge personal injury practices, yet others struggle and never will. It explains why marketing, advertising, dining and sporting events are failed paradigms in building the PI practice and are not substitutes for clinical excellence and admissibility. This program sets the foundation of understanding the needs of the medical-legal community and unless you speak the language of the lawyer in an ethical relationship, you will forever be on the outside looking in. We also set the foundation of the tools needed, in documentation, clinical skills and protocols required to be the best-of-the-best at what you do and the formula for getting the lawyer to come after you vs. you begging and pleading for referrals.

Module #2: Physical Examination & Documentation for the Trauma Patient

Course Objective: This session of the PI Bootcamp explains the "why" behind your evaluation for admissibility purposes. It goes into depth on how to communicate your findings to the legal community. There is a step-by-step formula on what to include in a thorough, yet concise history and evaluation and sets the foundation on how to build your narrative on that basis. It will explain, in detail, how to "de-bunk" many of the myths in the medical-legal community that hurt your patient, through "clinical excellence" and how to communicate the truth in an admissible format. This course is essential in understanding the how and why of the narrative process while also creating an admissible format.

This 3 hour course covers how to document the entire history and findings of a trauma case and ensures that both settlements(Colossus) and verdict items are covered through thorough documentation. The entire program is centered on the current teachings in academia and focuses on creating an accurate diagnosis, prognosis and treatment plan. The carriers algorithms for "Colossus type" requirements are quite specific and when analyzed meet all of the academic requirements for thorough documentation. Those standards, inclusive of functional losses and ancillary care, support, gaps in care, etc... are all explained in detail. There are many areas where courtroom requirements conflict with carrier requirements, however if an academic standard is adhered to, both scenarios are ethically documented. 

Part 1:  Integration of "Colossus type" insurance algorithms and court documentation requirements with current academia standards. Protocols and documentation standards in ordering diagnostics and treatment regimens.                                           2 Hours

Part 2: Documenting functional losses, both duties under duress and loss of enjoyment of life and the 36 points utilized by the courts, "Colossus type" insurance algorithms and required by academia.                                                                                   1 Hour

The Testifying course covers how to set up the "4-corners" of your patient documentation for a medical-legal setting based upon an accurate history and physical examination and then how to ensure it is documented accurately. It then goes to the next step in showing you how to articulate and if necessary, defend your records in direct-examination, cross-examination and re-direct examinations. This program covers every aspect of the legal process in becoming an expert, inclusive of what is required to be considered an expert at this level. 

Although doctors have to follow the tenents of our licenses, we are also compelled by the legal system to function according to the rules of the courts, which are not inherent within the training of doctors and this course will prepare you to succeed in that system. In addition, the course will prepare you to triage your patients based upon clinical necessity and secure the documentation from other providers to conclude and accurate diagnosis, prognosis and treatment plan.
