2022 Update in Internal Medicine (UIM) Virtual: Advances Changing Practice

October 6, 2022 to October 7, 2022

On behalf of the University of Pittsburgh’s Department of Medicine and the Update in Internal Medicine Course Directors, we invite you to join us for the 2022 Update in Internal Medicine (UIM): Advances Changing Practice course taking place on October 6-7, 2022.

Each year, the Department of Medicine hosts this 2-day educational event. Throughout the years, the event has averaged 350 attendees, including general internists, family practitioners, advanced practice providers, physician assistants, nurses/nurse practitioners, pharmacists, and other healthcare professionals. The course provides a comprehensive update on major advances in internal medicine as well as a review of various medical-and surgical-related topics impacting daily practice from a panel of nationally recognized faculty. Participants also receive updates on disease practice activities. Emphasis is placed on evidence-based approaches to practical and innovative healthcare delivery, including care pathways that emphasize key elements in the diagnosis and management of various diseases. The course fosters the cooperation, coordination, and collaboration of professionals of different medical specialties in delivering cost-effective, patient-centered care.

Due to the ongoing uncertainty around COVID19 requirements, and attendee feedback, the Department of Medicine has made the decision to offer this course virtually this year. Our goal for the virtual event is to continue to offer our participants a safe environment to obtain a comprehensive update on the major advances in internal medicine, while earning continuing education credits and learning from highly regarded clinicians, educators, and researchers.

Target Audience

Physician, Advanced Practice Provider, Nurse, Nurse Practitioner, Pharmacist, Physician Assistant, and Other Healthcare Professional.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:
• Define care management pathways for common diseases encountered in primary care.
• Synthesize current scientific evidence for managing various diseases and disorders.
• Analyze the impact and outcomes of newer medications, preventative measures, techniques and medical management.
