Trending Topics in Internal Medicine

Therapies and practice guidelines in internal medicine are constantly evolving as new evidence arises. The busy practicing clinician is limited in time to attend live courses to keep up to date and critically evaluate the medical literature. The aim of this program is to provide the practicing clinician with focused updates on specific topics in internal medicine. Each course will be approximately 20-30 minutes, long enough to cover the topic but short enough to keep the learner actively engaged. *Learners will receive a separate certificate for each course.
