The ACGME core competencies provide the educational framework and the basic foundation of this CME activity. Each faculty member brings their specialty specific knowledge of the literature along with their specialty specific expertise to bear on difficult spine and spinal cord cases. Treatment consensus is the ultimate goal. Discussions that do not achieve consensus strive to identify a path to consensus.
