Description & Objectives

This course is designed to provide a comprehensive review of the most important advances that have recently been made in internal
medicine, and to help candidates prepare for the Internal Medicine Boards or the Recertification Examination. Each of the major
subspecialties will be covered including cardiology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, hematology, infectious disease, nephrology,
neurology, oncology, pulmonary disease, and rheumatology. Much of the material will be presented in lecture format by the best teachers
and clinicians from the Columbia University Medical Center. In addition, each specialty will have a case-based question
and answer session using an interactive computer-based system. This system will allow you (anonymously) to test your knowledge in the
different areas of medicine. At the conclusion of the course, participants will be better able to:

  • Understand the most current, evidence-based clinical practice guidelines for key core competency-based topics in medicine
  • Learn the latest knowledge & skills and apply them to daily practice
  • Make recommendations for optimal management of many common diseases
  • Diagnose and manage problems frequently encountered in the hospital and office
