    May 8-9, 2017

    It has been estimated that one-third of symptoms reported to primary care physicians are musculoskeletal, and the vast majority of musculoskeletal disease is evaluated by a primary care, urgent care, or occupational medicine provider before patients are ever seen by a specialist. The goal of this course is to address the outpatient care of common musculoskeletal problems by primary care providers. The diagnosis and non-surgical management of musculoskeletal disorders will be covered in lectures, case discussions, and video demonstrations of examination and injection techniques. In addition, optional workshops in splinting and casting and interpretation of radiological studies will be available to participants. In participating in this course, we hope that our audience will be able to discuss the relationship between the anatomy and injury of specific anatomical areas; describe initial management of many orthopedic problems, both acute and chronic; and be more familiar with how to conduct and interpret musculoskeletal physical examinations.

  • Primary Care Pediatrics

    Wednesday, November 30, 2016

    During some sessions, the course breaks into small seminars to explore areas of particular interest. The practice of general pediatrics requires a large knowledge base covering many areas of practice. Keeping up to date is a challenge. Using the yearly course evaluations, we determine the topic areas most needed by pediatricians. These generally include disciplines that are not well-taught during training. We aim to present state of-the-art information that pediatricians can incorporate into their daily practices.
