The lectures are designed to provide practical “take-home” pointsthat you can put into practice upon your return to the office and hospital. Ample time is allotted at the endof each session to have your questions addressed by the speakers, and many attendees confer informallywith lecturers during the breaks.We have continued our popular “Meet the Professor” sessions over breakfast and lunch to provide you withopportunities to broaden your medical knowledge and skills through case discussions, workshops andinteractive presentations. Again we are offering a dinner symposium, this year hosted in the University ofVirginia’s newly opened medical education building, where you can hear one of the nation’s leadingeducators provide a glimpse into the future of medical education and tour one of the most advancedmedical education facilities in the nation.The course will be particularly useful to generalists – physicians, nurse practitioners and physicianassistants -- practicing in a variety of settings, but specialists also attend this conference to stay abreast ofimportant advances in medical care. All meeting materials will be available for download at the RACMwebsite for registered participants prior to the conference. A printed syllabus is available for a smalladditional charge.Late October is one of the most spectacular times of the year to visit Charlottesville.
