Join us in Chicago and Tampa for hospitalist-centered CME

May 2006

Published in the May 2006 issue of Today’s Hospitalist

With summer just around the corner, many of you are probably making plans for summer getaways. But now is a great time to start thinking about what you’re going to do in the fall for CME.

I mention this because Hospitalist Conferences USA, a sister company of Today’s Hospitalist, will present its second CME series for hospitalists in a few months. The Fall 2006 CME Series for Hospitalists will travel to two cities this year: Chicago on Sept. 18 and Tampa on Nov. 13.

Last year’s meetings were a huge success. The comments we received from hospitalists who attended had nothing but good things to say about everything from the topics at our meetings to the quality “and usefulness “of the presentations.

To bring that same level of quality to this year’s meetings, we’re working with Tracy Minichiello, MD, who is our Faculty Chair. Dr. Minichiello, a hospitalist and director of the anticoagulation clinic at the prestigious University of California, San Francisco, has chosen top-notch faculty to present topics that are the bread and butter of hospital medicine.

Along those lines, this year’s meeting series will present the latest evidence on topics like delirium, postoperative risk-reduction strategies, pain management and venous thromboembolism.

And to spice things up a little, we’ve added a new session in which speakers and audience members will work together to solve tough cases, and a keynote luncheon presentation that features one internist’s experience in the ICU as a patient. From what I’ve heard, this presentation leaves physicians speechless.

I realize that you have plenty of opportunities to earn CME credits, but I think you’ll find that few CME meetings do as good a job of focusing on hospitalists as we do.

If you’d like more information on the Fall 2006 CME Series for Hospitalists, see the special advertising supplement in this issue. You can also get more information and register online

I’ll hope to see at one of our meetings in the fall.
