Description
The conference will focus on one or more clinical issues, the treatment decisions and how those decisions relate to patient outcomes. The attendee not only learns the latest techniques and tools to more effectively and efficiently diagnose and treat a disease, but also techniques and tools that may be either inefficient or result in grave danger to the patient. By presenting the research-based knowledge in conjunction with clinical scenarios the participants will be able to apply the new knowledge into their clinical practices. This program is designed for the Internal Medicine Patient Care Team to include the primary care physicians and physicians in training.
