46th Annual Alumni Day

October 15, 2021

For this year’s Magee Alumni Day program, we have an exciting line-up of speakers consisting of past and current faculty and former residents. The program will feature updates on clinical care over the entire age spectrum of our patients. We expect the program to present topics that pose challenging clinical, technical, ethical and financial issues that today’s OB/GYN often faces, whether in practice or in an academic career. The program features endowed lectures — the Cohen, McCall, OB/GYN Legacy, Katz Minimally Invasive Surgery and Kunschner Memorial lectures as well as the inaugural Dr. Steve N. Caritis lecture.

Target Audience

This program is focused on health care practitioners in obstetrics and gynecology as well as in other primary care specialties.

Learning Objectives

 Be able to identify changes in medical milieu and how that has impacted residency
and fellowship surgical training, and methods to improve training.
 To review the evidence that maternal anti-fetal rejection occurs in patients with
pregnancy complications and review placental pathology which supports the
presence of the rejection.
 Describe how childbirth impacts the later development of pelvic floor disorders.
 Review conservative fibroid treatment options.
 Review and appreciate the past and current situation around COVID-19 and explore
future implications.
 Review the most common vulvar dermatoses, lichen sclerosis, lichen planus and
lichen simplex chornicus.
