Educational Need Addressed

In these days of fast paced clinical changes it is crucial for primary care practitioners to continuously update their knowledge and skills in the area of evidence based medicine, specifically - current best practices, diagnostic skills, risk factor identification and current treatment options.

Educational Objective

At the conclusion of each of our monthly meetings, the participants will be able to articulate current knowledge in each of the sub-specialty areas. Eighteen areas of study have been identified as basic to primary care adult medicine:

  • Cardiovascular Medicine
  • Dermatology
  • Endocrinology
  • Gastroenterology
  • General internal Medicine
  • Geriatrics
  • Hematology - Oncology
  • Infectious Diseases
  • Nephrology
  • Neurology - Psychiatry
  • Ophthalmology - Otolaryngology
  • Pain Management - End of Life Care
  • Preventive Medicine - Genomics
  • Pulmonary Medicine – Allergy
  • Rheumatology - Orthopedics
  • Risk Management
  • Urology
  • Women's Health - Gynecology

Who Should Attend...

Core is comprised of primary care providers practicing throughout the New England region and beyond. Core provides AMA PRA Category 1 credits and ABIM MOC points at a low cost and in a convenient format. Because more than 90% of the cost of an educational program relates to income lost from time away from practice, our live programs are routinely held on Saturday mornings and recorded for on demand viewing at any time.
