Course Description

In the current era of spiraling medical costs with growing emphasis on the provision of cost-effective medical care, it has become increasingly important for primary care physicians to be adept at evaluating and treating ambulatory gynecologic problems. This four-day symposium provides the participant with a practical, clinical update on a full range of women’s health issues including the diagnosis and management of common gynecologic complaints, contraception, endocrine disorders, and the menopause. In-depth, small group workshops are included which instruct and allow participants to develop and refine their skills with endometrial biopsy, colposcopy and the intrauterine contraceptive device.

The FDA has issued a concept paper which classifies commercial support of scientific and educational programs as promotional unless it can be affirmed that the program is "truly independent" and free of commercial influence. In addition to independence, the FDA requires that nonpromotional, commercially supported education be objective, balanced, and scientifically rigorous. The policy further states that all potential conflicts of interest of the CME staff and faculty be fully disclosed to the program's participants.
