Don't Delay - Register Today! Online registration will close on Wednesday, Sept. 6th at 3pm Pacific Time.

This is the 45th year that the Department of Family Medicine at the University of Washington School of Medicine is offering five days of educational opportunities for family medicine and primary care health care providers.

Each year, our goal is to provide current information about practice skills and the diagnosis and management of a broad array of primary health care issues within family medicine, cardiology, endocrinology, psychiatry and behavioral science, neurology, sports medicine, women’s health, pulmonology, nephrology, infectious disease, chronic pain, pediatrics, and gastroenterology.

This year, we are providing a special opportunity for all attendees to receive the All Patients Safe Suicide Prevention Training with no additional cost. This can be used toward the new required 6 hours for health care providers in the state of Washington. An initial plenary lecture and subsequent 2-hour workshop will cover key areas. Participants will be able to complete the remaining 3 hours of training using online training modules.

We will also be offering an additional evening program that can be taken on its own, or in addition to the full program. This Infectious Disease Update takes place Monday-Thursday, from 5:00-6:30 p.m. Experts will provide updates in the changing world of ID that will impact your practice. Our focus will be incorporating the latest knowledge and techniques in your busy primary care workflow.
