  • NARRATIVE DESCRIPTION

    Following this course, the participant should be able to appraise the epidemiology and presenting complaints of the commonly seen disorders within the specialities of Endocrinology and Rheumatology; apply a practical approach to the use of laboratory studies and physical exam for developing a differential or diagnosis; determine the various treatment options available and choose appropriate specialty referral or follow-up. This activity is expected to result in improved competence in making an appropriate diagnosis and providing effective treatment and referral or follow-up care with the overall goal of improving patient outcomes. When indicated in the specific objectives, emphasis will be on aligning physician behavior with current guidelines and evidence-based medicine with a focus on diagnosis, treatment and when to refer. Since the specialties of Endocrinology and Rheumatology impact patient populations of all demographics, there is a need for providers to be up-to-date on common Endocrine and Rheumatologic diseases; therefore, this course was designed as an update for all practitioners at the level of a practicing physician.
