Conducting initial FPPE on low- and no-volume practitioners

You’ve been chipping away at it for years, and now you finally feel like you have ironed out all of the kinks in your FPPE process. It is a well-oiled machine, and even when you get questions from practitioners, you can usually find the answers. Then one day, you notice that an orthopedic surgeon who applied for privileges at your facility 12 months ago is still undergoing his initial FPPE. Upon further review, you notice that he has only completed two of the six cases required for FPPE for orthopedic surgeons. Now you are left wondering how you can help this physician complete his FPPE so he can have full privileges at your facility and so you don’t have a lingering, unfinished task on your checklist.
