This interprofessional regularly scheduled series (RSS) is accredited through UW Interprofessional Continuing Education Partnership (ICEP). This educational series covers a variety of inpatient, outpatient, and consultative medicine topics pertinent to General Internal Medicine. Our conference meets on Wednesday AMs (except not the 1st Wed of the month) during the academic school year. Most conference attendees are GIM physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants, but nurses, pharmacists, psychologists, resident physicians, fellows, medical students, nursing students, PA students may also attend.
There are several available formats for our conference presenters to choose from:
1) Journal Club (60 Min). This is the discussion/review of a scholarly article.
2) Special or Controversial topic (60 min). The presenter provides a discussion of evidence from the literature related to a special topic or a controversial topic (eg ERT and Breast cancer risk, whether to use PSA to screen for prostate cancer).
3) Research Faculty State of the Art (60 min). GIM research faculty present their research to GIM clinicians and educators who may “reality test” the information. Researchers are encouraged to make presentations “user friendly” for non-researchers and to teach and explain research methods whenever possible.
4) State of the Art Topic (30 or 60 min). This is a review of important developments and “State of the Art” in Primary Care. This may or may not be controversial. Presentations are primarily related to clinical topics and include a scholarly review of the literature.
5) Clinical Case Presentations: Ward or Clinic (30 min). The case presentation should present the case and a scholarly review of the literature, with time allotted for brief discussion following the presentation.
6) Care Collaboration Conference (60 min). This involves a specialty physician reviewing actual eConsult cases with extensive discussion of the answers. The purpose of this conference type is to disseminate the answers to important or common questions that specialists receive from primary care physicians
7) Jeopardy/Quiz Bowl (60 min). This is intended to be a fun way to review the pathophysiology, clinical presentation, diagnosis, or treatment of various timely state of the art or special topics.
