Program Information


The Intensive Review of Internal Medicine Course is designed to enhance internal medicine knowledge by offering a comprehensive update (internal medicine & it’s subspecialties); a case-based review of challenging clinical problems and review of literature to guide evidence based practice and serve to prepare attendees for the ABIM Board Examinations (for Certification and Recertification). Many outstanding clinicians/teachers have been chosen as course instructors. Throughout the course, there is an emphasis on the practical application of physiological principals to the understanding and management of clinical problems for both clinical practice and board exam preparation. By updating practicing physicians/internists and trainees on everchanging medical guidelines and therapeutic strategies, this course will serve not only to bridge the gap related to lack of knowledge for certification and recertification, but is also designed to improve physician competence in the patient care setting where current/updated knowledge is applied.
 
 

Intended Audience


The intended audience for the Intensive Review of Internal Medicine course is clinical and academic internists, pediatricians and primary care physicians and trainees (resident/fellows) preparing for ABIM internal medicine certification/recertification examinations and/or seeking a comprehensive update in internal medicine and its subspecialties.
