Overview

COURSE DESCRIPTION
This annual interdisciplinary course offers participants an overview of current topics in internal medicine including interactive case studies. Interdisciplinary speakers present diverse clinical topics chosen for applicability to NP/PA and primary care physician practice settings. As complex patients transition care to the outpatient arena, current guideline-based medicine typically initiated in the hospital setting continues to be important as patients transition out of the acute care setting (myocardial infarction and cardiac rehabilitation, pneumonia treatment and follow up, hypertension management, heart failure, diabetes, renal insufficiency, GI conditions, stable ischemic heart disease, etc.). The course also offers unique and innovative small group fresh tissue workshops on biopsies and joint injections.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
Upon conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:

  • Identify diagnostic and clinical decision making skills consistent with evidence-based guidelines
  • Identify current, clinically oriented, evidence-based practice recommendations in specialties such as cardiology, endocrinology, pediatrics, internal medicine, surgery, behavorial medicine, preventive medicine, women's health, gastroenterology, and vascular medicine
  • Describe indications for diagnosis, management, and patient referral for clinical scenarios encountered in current practices
  • Identify current pharmaceutical considerations and indications, including new drugs, commonly prescribed for primary care conditions
