Learning Objectives

The purpose of this course is to increase competence and improve clinician practice in primary care. We specifically anticipate improvements in skills and strategies to:

  • Understand the impact that COVID-19 has had on primary care practice and use best evidence to treat patients with COVID-related conditions and concerns, including vaccinations and post-COVID sequelae
  • Implement new guidelines in office-based preventive medicine, including new strategies for cancer screening, immunizations, prevention of coronary heart disease, stroke, and STDs
  • Manage common office problems including diabetes, coronary heart disease, valvular heart disease, chronic kidney disease, heart failure, asthma, COPD, stroke, TIAs, osteoporosis, common cancers, Parkinson’s Disease, dementia, chronic pain and substance use disorder
  • Manage common specialty problems in neurology, cardiology, endocrinology, infectious disease, pulmonary medicine and critical care, oncology, dermatology, allergy and immunology, gynecology, and perioperative care
  • Diagnose and treat common problems in women's health including cervical, breast, endometrial, and ovarian cancer, contraception, osteoporosis, and gynecological concerns of older women
  • Understand the health implications of climate change and what health professional can do about it
  • Improve skills in medical documentation to maximize clinical efficiency and quality, best practices, and alignment with recent changes in federal requirements
  • Select the best diagnostic tests and enhance value in medical practice
  • Use best evidence and optimize patient communication and shared-decision making
  • Become a better clinician and advocate with a deeper understanding of structural racism, health disparities, and the central role of primary care clinicians in providing equitable, patient-centered care
