The risks and benefits of new insulin and noninsulin pharmacologic therapies is also presented. The role of diabetes medications, cholesterol-lowering agents, and blood pressure control to reduce cardiovascular risk is also discussed.
This collection of virtual lectures will cover:
- guidance on the evaluation, classification, and treatment of diabetes, including less common conditions, such as monogenic diabetes syndromes as well as medication-induced diabetes.

Preoperative validated risk assessment tools, mitigation strategies for identified comorbidities, and management of postoperative complications is emphasized in the course. Additionally, topics include managing perioperative medications; preoperative cardiac findings (abnormal ECGs, aortic murmurs, pacemakers, AICD devices); pulmonary risk factors; managing the patient with chronic kidney disease and frailty risk indices with modification strategies; postoperative cardiac complications; managing cannabis, suboxone, and methadone; using the target-specific anticoagulants; and treating postoperative delirium.
This collection of virtual lectures will cover:
- guidelines and best practices for preoperative laboratory testing, perioperative medication use, and common anesthesia-related issues.
- preoperative validated risk assessment tools, strategies to mitigate risk, and management of patients with a variety of pre- and postsurgery cardiac and pulmonary problems.

Topics will focus on the cardiovascular disease issues which internists most frequently encounter and will provide “Key Points” to update the audience and foster patient care. Subjects covered include identification and management of acute and chronic coronary artery disease, optimal treatment of acute and chronic heart failure, update in the treatment of hypertension, risk assessment and risk reduction for the patient with cardiac disease who undergoes noncardiac surgery, approach to the patient with valvular heart disease, approach to the care of the pregnant patient who has cardiac disease, atrial fibrillation update, approach to the treatment of the patient with edema, and discussion of selected cases.
This collection of virtual lectures will cover:
- guidelines and recent studies regarding hypertension, valvular heart disease, optimal blood pressure control, and care of the patient with cardiovascular disease who undergoes noncardiac surgery.
- approaches for decreasing the risk for complications and decreasing hospital readmissions for patients with a variety of cardiovascular issues.
- optimal surgical and pharmacologic treatments for the care of patients with coronary artery disease, heart failure, valvular heart disease, and atrial fibrillation.
- transition of care following hospital discharge for patients with a variety of cardiac issues.
- the role of technological advances in cardiac care that the internal medicine specialist may use in patient care: point-of-care ultrasound, telemedicine, and wearable cardiac rhythm monitoring devices.

Practical Office Orthopedics and Sports Medicine for the Internist
Captured directly from the one-day course offered in May 2022, expert clinician-educators provide the knowledge and tools needed to correctly evaluate, diagnose, and treat most orthopedic complaints seen in the internal medicine office. Utilizing a case-based approach, topics include basic joint and tendon anatomy and landmarks in efforts to perform a concise, targeted office exam, combined with knowledge of the epidemiology of musculoskeletal complaints in primary care to develop an accurate diagnostic approach. Treatment is discussed, with special emphasis on a practical, evidence-based, and cost-effective approach to physical therapy and medical devices.
This collection of visually rich presentations will cover:
- the epidemiology of the most common orthopedic and sports medicine conditions seen in the internal medicine office.
- basic joint and tendon anatomy in major joint and musculoskeletal regions.
- performing targeted, practical, and evidence-based diagnostic maneuvers for common musculoskeletal complaints.
- diagnosing musculoskeletal problems through history and physical examination.
- indications for judicious use of imaging.
- treatment plans, including medication, exercises, and use of splints or braces.
- clinically appropriate resources for patient education and for home exercise plans.
- patients who require further testing or orthopedics consultation and those that can be safely treated under the guidance of the internist.
