Course Description
This annual interdisciplinary course offers participants an overview of current topics in internal medicine including interactive case studies using automated audience response system. 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 (MI core measures, pneumonia guidelines, hypertension management, Acute MI presentation, stable ischemic heart disease, etc.) typically initiated in the hospital setting continues to be important as patients are managed outside the hospital setting.
