Objectives

NARRATIVE DESCRIPTION

Following this course, the participant should be able to appraise the etiologies and recognize the clinical presentations of the commonly seen disorders presented; indicate diagnostic tests available and the suggested use for making a diagnosis; implement available treatment options and appropriate long-term care when indicated.  This activity is expected to result in improved competence in making an appropriate diagnosis and providing effective treatment and referral or follow-up care with the overall goal of improving patient outcomes.

The emphasis will be on aligning physician behavior with current guidelines and evidence-based medicine, as indicated within each topic’s specific objectives.  Since Internal Medicine takes a lead role in medicine in general, this course was designed for all practitioners at the level of a practicing physician to provide a review and update in their application of medical knowledge and practice strategies to diagnose, treat and improve patient care.
