Event info

The 48th Edward W. Hook, Jr., MD Recent Advances in Clinical Medicine conference is a multidisciplinary, interprofessional, continuing education conference designed to provide primary care clinicians with the knowledge and skills needed to practice state-of-the-art generalist medicine. Through an eclectic array of presentations by representatives of general internal medicine, internal medicine subspecialties, and selected other specialties, the program will highlight new or emerging conditions or treatments with key “take-home” messages, as well as provide updates in the diagnosis and/or management of well-recognized conditions. The educational design of the program will encompass formal presentations, questions/answer panels and meet-the-professor sessions, which allow close interaction with content experts.

EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

At the completion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Initiate evaluation of both common symptom complexes and medical conditions encountered in primary care and hospital practice, utilizing evidence-based and state-of-the-art approaches
  • Institute or modify management of selected important conditions seen in the general adult population, employing up-to-date and cost-effective strategies
  • Recognize when specialty referral is indicated for certain medical conditions and have a basic understanding of the anticipated care to be provided by the consultant
  • Counsel patients more effectively regarding the benefits, risks, and uncertainties in challenging clinical scenarios, such as contraception, osteoporosis, and diabetes management options.
  • Discuss the latest developments regarding the Covid-19 pandemic, including immunization and post-Covid complications.
