  • Chest Imaging: 2016

    Monday, October 17, 2016

    The rapidly expanding subspecialty of Thoracic Radiology creates a challenge for physicians to stay current. The three-day chest course will include symposia dedicated to the multidisciplinary assessment and management of lung cancer, lung cancer screening, the approach to HRCT and interstitial lung diseases and acute cardiothoracic imaging. New modalities including PET-CT, MRI, dual-energy CT and dose reduction strategies will be presented.
  • General Thoracic Surgery

    Thursday, May 26, 2016

    Our annual post-graduate course in general thoracic surgery--the first such course offered in the United States--continues to fulfill its mission for the 44th year. The objective of this course, which will be held May 26-27, 2016, is to provide an in-depth review of selected topics in general thoracic surgery. Emphasis will be on current principles of management and surgical technique.
  • Primary Care Orthopaedics

    Monday, May 02, 2016

    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.

  • Emergencies and Procedures in Pediatrics

    Friday, December 11, 2015

    This intensive course is designed to provide updates and advances in pediatric emergencies. Key lectures will focus on the "must knows" of pediatric trauma, including non-accidental abuse, bedside ultrasound, and burn management. Small group interactive sessions will highlight procedural sedation, urgent diagnostic radiology, and management of life-threatening events through megacodes. Hands-on workshops will allow participants to practice airway management, including rapid sequence intubation and laryngeal mask airways, point-of-care ultrasound, advanced simulation, and pediatric procedures such as vascular and intraosseous access. Pediatric surgeons will offer individualized teaching on suturing, casting, and splinting. The keynote speaker will present the latest on toxicology cases and acute pain management. This course is designed to change both physician competence and performance in practice.
  • Save the Date: Primary Care Pediatrics

    Wednesday, December 02, 2015

    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. The course attempts to present state of-the-art information that pediatricians can incorporate into their daily practices.
