UIM 2022 VIRTUAL

October 6-7, 2022

On behalf of the University of Pittsburgh’s Department of Medicine and the Update in Internal Medicine Course Directors, we invite you to join us for the 2022 Update in Internal Medicine (UIM): Advances Changing Practice course taking place on October 6-7, 2022.

Each year, the Department of Medicine hosts this 2-day educational event. Throughout the years, the event has averaged 350 attendees, including general internists, family practitioners, advanced practice providers, physician assistants, nurses/nurse practitioners, pharmacists, and other healthcare professionals. The course provides a comprehensive update on major advances in internal medicine as well as a review of various medical-and surgical-related topics impacting daily practice from a panel of nationally recognized faculty. Participants also receive updates on disease practice activities. Emphasis is placed on evidence-based approaches to practical and innovative healthcare delivery, including care pathways that emphasize key elements in the diagnosis and management of various diseases. The course fosters the cooperation, coordination, and collaboration of professionals of different medical specialties in delivering cost-effective, patient-centered care.

The Department of Medicine has made the decision to offer the course virtually this year; due to the ongoing uncertainty around COVID19 and in response to the majority of our attendees requesting this format. In order for our attendees, speakers, sponsors, and leadership to have face time, we will be hosting an in-person course reception at 5:30pm on Thursday, October 6th, at the Pitt University Club in Pittsburgh, PA.
