Course Overview

Scripps Health’s Primary Care Summer Conference was designed by primary care physicians for primary care physicians and will present content from their unique perspective. This important CME conference will educate and promote improved patient outcomes in a broad range of therapeutic areas commonly encountered in the busy primary care practice. In addition to an overview of the history and current science of a variety of specialty areas, content will be presented in a very practical, patient-focused manner relevant to the specific primary care setting and challenges.

Educational Objectives

After attending this live activity, participants should be able to:

  • Discuss the history, science and evidence of commonly encountered therapeutic areas.
  • Integrate current trends in preventive health care into patient care strategies.
  • Diagnose frequently encountered medical conditions using office examinations and formal diagnostic techniques.
  • Formulate a comprehensive treatment program for various health issues, coordinating other team members within the practice to support the patient care strategy.
