OVERVIEW

Scripps Health’s Primary Care Summer Conference was designed by primary care physicians for primary care physicians and the interdisciplinary care team and will present content from their unique perspective. This important CME conference will educate and promote improved patient outcomes in a broad range of therapeutic areas commonly encountered in the busy primary care practice. In addition to an overview of the history and current science of a variety of specialty areas, content will be presented in a very practical, patient-focused manner relevant to the specific primary care setting and challenges.

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • Access and/or recommend resources for both physicians and patients to acquire additional information pertinent to a range of therapeutic areas.
