We and the faculty are once again totally committed to making this learning experience engaging and stellar!
The practice of state-of-the-art medicine requires updated knowledge of all of the specialties that internal medicine encompasses.
This intensive course will provide you with comprehensive, up-to-date, evidence based diagnostic and therapeutic concepts that you will be able to implement into your daily practice.
Teaching will be primarily through lectures, special workshops, Ask the Expert sessions, panels and case discussions with a plethora of visual aids. In addition, each specialty will have a case-based session using an interactive wireless audience response system, which will allow you to anonymously test your knowledge in the different areas of medicine, and compare it with your peers. The syllabus will include a multitude of checklists and opportunities in writing to make a “commitment to improve” areas of your practice.
Participation in this course will be immensely helpful if you are preparing for the internal medicine boards or recertification examination.
We hope that you will leave this course informed and inspired and through your work, your patients will live healthier and happier lives.
