Family Medicine Workshop

 

 

The Family Medicine Workshop examines a broad spectrum of topics and concerns of clinical interest and relevance to primary care physicians. Each two-day, weekend course provides plenty of time for case discussion and interaction with the faculty. The objective is to provide information on diagnostic techniques, advanced technical theory, current research, problem-solving methods, and management techniques within the core content areas of family medicine. Whether you attend both weekends or just one, you’re sure to receive a comprehensive review of the essentials of family medicine.

Additional Programming = More CME Credit!

An American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM) Family Medicine Certification Knowledge Self-Assessment (KSA) and Clinical Self-Assessment (CSA) on Diabetes has been added to the schedule as an optional add-on session to Course 1. If you need to complete this component of your ongoing certification, then this program is for you! Participants will work with an expert moderator to complete the KSA and CSA in a group setting. Physicians that participate in this session will receive 10 points from the ABFM for completing the KSA and an additional 5 points for completing the optional, corresponding CSA. Physicians will also receive 8 live Prescribed CME credits from the American Academy of Family Physicians. Please note, participation in this session requires a cell phone or laptop that can access the internet for the KSA portion and a laptop for the CSA portion. The fee for this add-on session does not include the charge that the ABFM will assess you for your family medicine certification.

A splinting workshop sponsored by OrthopedicONE has been added to the schedule for Course 2. This session is automatically included for all attendees at no additional fee.
