At OMSNIC, our mission is not only to protect, but also to serve the OMS community. OMSNIC has a number of resources which are available online that residents may find useful.
OMSNICase is a collection of informative, real-life patient case studies submitted by oral and maxillofacial surgery residents, faculty and clinicians. The case studies represent challenging clinical cases, complications and outcomes and can be used to assess and encourage diagnostic and treatment decisions.
OMSNIC offers an additional 5% premium credit for residents who have completed our online resident-specific risk management series. For more information, click here.
The bi-monthly Monitor newsletter contains articles with a risk management focus. With regular features such as a Closed Claim Summary and Staff Corner, the newsletter provides information on risk management, regulatory and legal issues that are of importance to Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.
OMSNIC developed the Resident Surgical Log system as a convenient way for residents to record and maintain accurate, real-time records of their surgical experience. It contains pull-down menus for program-specific faculty and treatment facilities, in addition to ICD-9 diagnostic codes, CPT/CDT procedure codes, as well as off-service anesthesia codes. The reports generated from the RSL enable residents to track accreditation requirements.
These resources are available in the OMSNIC Resource Center to any resident who participates in the Resident Surgical Log, or who signs in as a guest user to the OMSNIC website.
