VenueThis recordings are designed to provide a comprehensive review of the most important advances that have recently been made in internal medicine, and to help candidates prepare for the Internal Medicine Boards or the Recertification Examination. Each of the major subspecialties will be covered including cardiology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, hematology, infectious disease, nephrology, neurology, oncology, pulmonary disease, and rheumatology. Much of the material will be presented in lecture format by the best teachers and clinicians from the Columbia University Medical Center. In addition, each specialty will have a case-based question and answer session using an interactive computer-based system. This system will allow you (anonymously) to test your knowledge in the different areas of medicine. At the conclusion of the course, participants will be better able to:
Understand the most current, evidence-based clinical practice guidelines for key core competency-based topics in medicine
Learn the latest knowledge & skills and apply them to daily practice
Make recommendations for optimal management of many common diseases
Diagnose and manage problems frequently encountered in the hospital and office
