This comprehensive review is designed to help you pass your ABFM exams (both initial certification and recertification) as well as to update your clinical knowledge base. Emphasis is on evidence-based medicine and board-relevant standards of care, incorporating new concepts, strategies, and treatments. The six-day didactic course includes lectures that review the entire field of Family Medicine. The course is run in a rapid-fire format to target a larger percentage of the board and practice-relevant information. In addition to the lectures, the course includes a searchable e-syllabus with all PowerPoint® presentations, Q&A examples embedded into each lecture, and several Q& A review sessions. Many of our previous participants found the course provided them with improved diagnostic and testing strategies, a better understanding of all major disease entities relevant to the general practice of Family Medicine and helped them recognize specific areas of knowledge weakness for further self-study.
