Conferences

This is the 46th 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. Course topics are chosen with these criteria in mind:

• Suggestions from previous course attendees
• Distribution of topics should reflect the content of primary care
• Recent breakthroughs that may have significant impact on primary care practice and health outcomes
• Controversial topics where medical opinions may vary or are in flux

In addition, course content includes information about practice transformation, quality improvement, and educating future primary care providers.

We offer a wide variety of interactive workshops to reinforce and deepen content that is shared in large group plenary sessions. We are also integrating educational methods that engage learners and deepen learning during plenary sessions.
