Pulmonary Board Review Course

Sponsored by Oakstone Medical Publishing and
Co-Sponsored by the University of Alabama School of Medicine
Division of Continuing Medical Education

The UAB School of Medicine’s Pulmonary Board Review Course is an in-depth, case-based review, and is designed to provide pulmonologists and pulmonologists in-training and critical care with current, relevant, and condensed information needed to pass certification (written and oral exams), recertification, and maintenance of certification exams.

It is also valuable if you are simply looking for a great all-inclusive review of pulmonary medicine. The concise format means it will focus only on what is necessary to pass the exam and stay current. More than 35 leading edge presentations are delivered by UAB School of Medicine faculty selected for their outstanding teaching methods and expertise in target ‘must-know’ areas.
