Family Medicine Workshop

January 18-19 & February 1-2, 2025
Renaissance Columbus Westerville-Polaris Hotel
Westerville, OH

Registration for the 2025 event will open in the Fall 2024.

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.

The 2024 meeting was held January 13-14 & 27-28. Registered attendees can still access the Course 1 and Course 2 presentations through the fall 2024.

Designed to maximize both continuing medical education (CME) and weekend family time, attendees  hear four 2.5 hour presentations per weekend and earn approximately 25 CME credits over both weekends.

2025 topics will include:
  • ENT
  • Gastrointestinal
  • General surgery
  • Geriatrics
  • Ophthalmology
  • Orthopedic surgery
  • Pediatrics.

In addition, an American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM) Family Medicine Certification Knowledge Self-Assessment (KSA) will also be held as an optional add-on session.  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 in a group setting. Physicians that participate in this session will receive 10 points from the ABFM for completing the KSA and 8 live Prescribed CME credits from the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP).

Please note, participation in the KSA requires a cell phone, laptop, or tablet that can access the internet. Our moderator will use an online audience response system to administer the KSA. The fee for this add-on session does not include the charge the ABFM assesses you for your family medicine certification.

Whether you participate in both weekends or just one, you will receive a comprehensive review of the essentials of family medicine.

This event will be open to in-person attendees only. There will not be a virtual attendance option or a recording of the sessions available.
