The major objective of this course is to provide a comprehensive review of the most important advances that have recently been made in internal medicine. Although board review is not the primary purpose of the course, question-based sessions are included and are likely to be useful to candidates taking the Internal Medicine Boards or the Recertification Examination.
Who Should Attend?
The course is directed at the level of the internist and family practitioner in practice and will also be useful for residents. The emphasis will be placed on progress that has been made in pathophysiology and clinical management in the most common disorders seen by the internist and family practitioner. Each of the major subspecialties will be covered including cardiology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, hematology, infectious disease, nephrology, women’s health,
oncology, pulmonary disease, obesity and nutrition, and rheumatology.
Much of the material will be presented in lecture format by the best teachers and clinicians from two major medical centers. In addition, each specialty will have a case-based session using an interactive wireless Audience Response System that will be present on your desk. This system will allow you (anonymously) to test your knowledge in the different areas of medicine.
An understanding of the clinically important advances that have been made in common diseases
