The Family Medicine Workshop examines a broad spectrum of topics and concerns of clinical interest and relevance to primary care physicians. Each course provides 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 participate in both weekends or just one, you will receive a comprehensive review of the essentials of family medicine.

How will this Work?

The high-quality programming you have come to expect from the Family Medicine Workshop will be delivered virtually. The Ohio Academy of Family Physicians (OAFP) has partnered with a professional production company to provide valuable live prescribed continuing medical education (CME) credit, by utilizing Zoom, an online web conferencing platform. This will allow family physicians learners from across the state the ability to participate, while engaging an expert content leader, from any location.

Each core topic (or 90-minute session) will be pre-recorded and broadcast “live” the day of the event, followed by a 30 minute “real time” question and answer period with the speaker(s), moderated by a physician, enabling attendees to have the interactive experience they’ve grown to love.

If online web conferencing is unfamiliar, or you consider yourself “technologically challenged,” have no fear–we’re here to help! The OAFP staff will be hosting “office hours” or trial times before the event in an effort to help attendees familiarize themselves with Zoom BEFORE the actual meeting.
