Foot Fractures

Don’t toe the line when it comes to your education. Step up, don’t be a heel, and listen to this episode of PEM Currents: The Pediatric Emergency Medicine Podcast focusing on fractures of the feet and toes. Learn all about metatarsal fractures, including the Jones fracture, Lisfranc injuries, why you should worry about a fracture of the talar neck, and more in this seventh and final epode of the Fracture Season.

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’.
