Research and Markets: Comprehensive Board Review in Internal Medicine Is Designed For All Physicians Preparing For the American Board of Internal Medicine Examination.
The Comprehensive Board Review in Internal Medicine is designed specifically for physicians who plan to take the ABIM examination. Most of the material presented will be in case-based format. A number of important topics, including ophthalmology, office orthopedics, gynecology, epidemiology, and ethics will be included.
Special "visual" sessions will be devoted to reviewing x-rays, ECG's, peripheral smears and cutaneous lesions. A "clinical pearls" session that reviews important board-type information and test-taking skills will be provided on a frequent basis. The overall objective of this program is to successfully prepare physicians to take the American Board of Internal Medicine and Re-Certification Exams. Internal Medicine and all primary care physicians may elect to use this review as an efficient method to update their internal medicine knowledge.
This program is designed for all physicians preparing for the American Board of Internal Medicine Certifying or Re-Certifying Examination. This program also serves as an excellent overview for practicing internists, family physicians, and others interested in refreshing their knowledge in internal medicine.
After reviewing this educational activity, participants should be able to:
* Identify personal strengths and weaknesses by participating in question and answer sessions with faculty
* Give examples of the clinical manifestations of diseases encountered by the internists
* List approaches to the diagnosis and therapy of common internal medicine conditions
