As the field of hospital medicine continues to grow, so does the complexity and management of hospitalized patients. This program will address many of the challenges experienced by hospital-based health care professionals and provide a forum for the exchange of clinical and practice ideas to enhance the delivery of health care and provide better patient outcomes. Using an interactive, case-based format, key highlights from most major areas of internal medicine and its subspecialties will be presented. To maximize your time away from your practice and enhance your learning experience, two optional educational activities will be offered.
•The American Board of Internal Medicine Maintenance of Certification session on Update in Hospital Medicine will be offered Thursday, October 16, 2014.
•A Bedside Procedures Workshop will be offered Friday, October 17, 2014 at Mayo Clinic Hospital’s state-of-the-art simulation center.
This workshop is designed for clinicians interested in exploring the use of point-of-care diagnostic ultrasound and performing ultrasound examinations and procedures on anatomic and live models with bedside instruction.
