Primary Care Physicians are dedicated to taking care of a wide variety of medical conditions and must also be dedicated to life long learning. Our approach must constantly evolve to keep up with the changes in available treatments, new research, reimbursement models, government regulation and electronic medical record requirements.
This series of lectures serves to review and update PCPs on common conditions we see in the office everyday using available new guidelines (such as Diabetes and Hypertension) as well as what is new within the field of Family Medicine (such as Population Health and the latest research).Topics:
