Learn what they didn't teach you in medical school...

For more than 10 years, the Western Institute of Legal Medicine (WILM) has been a trusted resource for medical professionals across the country seeking to improve clinical skills and comply with mandated remedial education requirements.
WILM’s courses are team-taught by experienced health care physician-attorneys and distinguished pain medicine specialists who make these important topics understandable and interesting. WILM’s faculty have decades worth of real-world experience guiding medical professionals through the complex minefield of ever changing state and federal medical laws, practice guidelines, and the plethora of medical ethical issues facing medical practitioners in the 21st century across the country.  
WILM Courses
WILM offers multiple Medical Board-approved and fully accredited Continuing Medical Education (CME) courses for healthcare professionals who seek up-to-date, in-depth knowledge that will help protect his/her professional reputation and career. 

WILM offers comprehensive courses covering the important topics of Medical Ethics and Professionalism, Medical Record Keeping, Prescribing Practices and the Safe Use of Opioids and Other Scheduled Drugs in the Treatment of Chronic Pain and Substance Use Disorders, Professional Boundaries, Risk Management, and Patient Safety. 

The reality is that most medical training programs do not cover proper Medical Record Keeping and Documentation, Medical Ethics, or Professionalism.  Mastering these important topics and skills is critically important to protect your medical career that you have worked so hard to achieve. 

WILM’s CME courses are especially focused on providing the practical tools that healthcare providers can easily apply to their everyday practice that will help reduce the risk of patient injury and avoid the common errors that often lead to professional disciplinary actions and medical malpractice actions.
  • Medical records are often a provider’s best defense against allegations of malpractice, substandard care, or improper billing. 
  • Safe and ethical prescribing practices combined with proper medical documentation will help shield you from unwarranted government scrutiny.
  • Learn from the safety and comfort of your home or office.
  • Choose from our selection of live online interactive accredited CME Video courses & more!

I wish I had taken these courses sooner. High level of education and experience of presenters. Presentations were very understandable and logical.
Dr. C, Radiologist Oakland, CA
These courses should be required for all California physicians. I have learned techniques that will improve my practice and help limit my risk of a future lawsuit. I wish that all my colleagues carried the information taught in this course with them. The content of these courses represents the highest utility learning since kindergarten!
Dr. R, Psychiatrist

I learned a lot. The legal background of speakers allowed for real-world examples of ways in which law suits and medical board complaints come to fruition.
