Overview:
Changing patterns of medical practice are placing greater emphasis on ambulatory medicine. Increasingly difficult management decisions must now be made in the outpatient setting. Greater emphasis is being placed on office-based preventive medicine, reduction of cardiovascular risk factors, care of elderly patients, special problems in women's health, application of behavioral medicine skills and the rational use of diagnostic tests and new medications. Designed for practicing internists, family practitioners, and other primary care health professionals, this course will present a comprehensive review of new developments in outpatient medicine. Special attention will be paid to the day-to-day controversies of office practice. An audience response system will facilitate questions and discussion. A complete course syllabus will be distributed to all participants at registration.

This course is presented by the Division of General Internal Medicine, Department of Medicine, and is sponsored by the University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine.
