Overview: Changing patterns of medical practice are placing greater responsibility on primary care clinicians. Increasingly difficult management decisions must now be made in the ambulatory setting. Primary care clinicians must be increasingly competent in office skills and procedures more commonly associated with specialist practice. At the same time, many specialty-trained physicians, particularly obstetrician/gynecologists, traditionally trained internists and medical subspecialists are being asked to play an expanding their role in primary care practice. Nurse practitioners and physician assistants are also playing an ever-increasing role. This course is designed to provide a comprehensive core curriculum in adult primary care. The course will serve as an excellent update and review for current primary care physicians and other primary care professionals and as an opportunity for specialists to expand their primary care knowledge and skills. Particular emphasis will be placed on principles of primary care, office-based preventive medicine, practical management of the most common problems seen in primary care practice, and expanded skills in clinical examination and common office procedures. Special emphasis will be placed on office-based skills and problem solving in dermatology, office gynecology and women’s health, neurology, geriatrics, clinical nutrition, and reading the medical literature. The course will utilize formal lectures, hands-on workshops, case discussions, an audience response system, and questions and answers. A detailed syllabus will be provided for all participants. 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: • Implement new guidelines in office-based preventive medicine including cancer screening and management of cardiac risk factors; • Develop strategies to care for common office problems including hypertension, lipid disorders, diabetes, coronary heart disease, heart failure, chronic kidney disease, Parkinson’s Disease, sleep disorders, and sexually transmitted infections. • Manage common problems in women’s health including osteoporosis, contraception, and menopause; • Diagnose and treat common skin disorders, skin infections, and skin cancer; • Manage common problems in psychiatry including depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, and somatoform disorders; • Manage common problems in geriatrics; • Counsel patients to improve eating habits, lose weight, and increase physical activity; • Perform an effective problem-focused history and physical examination for evaluation and treatment of dermatologic complaints; • Perform common office procedures in dermatology and office gynecology; • Develop best practices in patient communication; • Critically evaluate the medical literature and apply it to clinical practice • Increase quality and decrease costs in medical practice
