The rapid advances in diagnosis and treatment makes continuing updating important for the family physician. This three-day course is designed to cover current and common areas of clinical practice, including integrated topics in: cardiology, dermatology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, geriatrics, gynecology, health care delivery, infectious disease, integrative medicine, musculoskeletal, neurology, oncology, otolaryngology, pediatrics, psychiatry, radiology, sports medicine, and surgery. A half-day of concurrent sessions includes hands-on clinical skills in emergency management. Evening workshops include practical sessions on evaluation and differential diagnosis of the cervical spine, and on biopsy of skin lesions.

  1. Diagnose and clinically manage problems frequently encountered in family practice.
  2. Use and interpret currently available diagnostic techniques.
  3. Appropriately apply and select from among currently available therapeutic modalities.
  4. Apply skills in problem-solving, including eliciting pertinent history, performing physical examination, gathering and evaluating diagnostic data, making clinical decisions, implementing therapy and providing continuous care.
  5. Perform appropriate preventive procedures and patient counseling to promote and maintain health and prevent disease.
  6. Identify problems failing to respond to management as an anticipated and necessitating consultation to confirm the diagnosis and/or plan management, as well as those conditions requiring referral for definitive care.
