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, emergency medicine, endocrinology, gastroenterology, genomics, health care delivery, immunology, infectious disease, musculoskeletal, neurology, oncology, otolaryngology, pediatrics, psychiatry, radiology, rheumatology, sports medicine, surgery and women's health. A half-day of concurrent sessions includes hands-on clinical skills to prepare for urgent care. Evening workshops include practical sessions on evaluation and differential diagnosis of the cervical spine, and on stabilizing upper extremity joints.

  • Use and interpret currently available diagnostic techniques.

  • Perform appropriate preventive procedures and patient counseling to promote and maintain health and prevent disease.
  • 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.
