Description & Objectives: This course is designed to provide internists and family practitioners with a comprehensive review of the most important advances that have recently been made in internal medicine, and to help candidates prepare for the Internal Medicine Boards or the Recertification Examination. Each of the major subspecialties will be covered including cardiology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, hematology, infectious disease, nephrology, neurology, oncology, pulmonary disease, and rheumatology.
Much of the material will be presented in lecture format by the best teachers and clinicians from the Columbia University Medical Center. In addition, each specialty will have a case-based question and answer session using an interactive
computer-based system. This system will allow you (anonymously) to test your knowledge in the different areas of medicine.

  • At the conclusion of the course, participants will be better able to:
  • Understand clinical practice guidelines
  • Diagnose and manage problems frequently encountered in the office and hospital
  • Make recommendations for optimal management of many common diseases
