  2. 2. Update in General Internal Medicine for Subspecialists Physicians who choose specialty practice rarely have the time to maintain a working knowledge-base of internal medicine despite the impact of their work outside of their specialty. As the knowledge-base of internal medicine specialties such as cardiology, gastroenterology, infectious disease, endocrinology, pulmonary medicine, and non-medical specialties, such as surgery, psychiatry, and dermatology has expanded, there is more risk for unintended interaction between inventions and existing medical conditions or medications. This course has been specifically created to address this problem. General Internal Medicine for Subspecialist topics have been selected to cover most critical interfaces between internal medicine and all the relevant specialties. Our faculty has been chosen based on over 35 years of experience in post graduate medical education. The teaching methods used in the course include: didactic lectures, Q & A, and group case discussions. OBJECTIVES AT THE CONCLUSION OF THIS COURSE, PARTICIPANTS SHOULD BE ABLE TO: • Describe the many interactions among the medications prescribed by general internists and specialty physicians. • Appraise the specific diagnostic tests used in general internal medicine and specialty practices, including test sensitivity, specificity and predictive values. • Summarize the current treatment strategies for common conditions encountered in general internal medical and non medical specialties. • Discuss the expected results of therapies used in general internal medicine and specialty practice. • Recognize the side effects of therapies used in general internal medicine and specialty practice. • Specify the disease prevention and health promotion goals of general internal medicine. ACGME COMPETENCIES This course is designed to meet one or more of the following Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education competencies: patient care, medical knowledge, practice-based learning and improvement. WHO SHOULD ATTEND This course is designed for all subspecialists who need to expand their working knowledge-base of general internal medicine. The material is presented for clinicians as well as those in non clinical roles.2013 FacultyJOSHUA A. BECKMAN, MD SIMON M. HELFGOTT, MD DAVID M.
