UIM 2020 VIRTUAL

October 22-23, 2020

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 2020 Update in Internal Medicine (UIM): Advances Changing Practice course taking place on October 22-23, 2020.

Each year, the Department of Medicine hosts this 2-day educational event. Throughout the years, the event has averaged 300 attendees, including general internists, family practitioners, physicians assistants, nurses/nurse practitioners, pharmacists and other healthcare professionals throughout Pennsylvania and the surrounding states. 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.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and our anticipated requirements to maintain “social distancing,” the Department of Medicine has made the decision to offer this course virtually this year. Our goal for the virtual event is to continue to offer our participants a safe environment to obtain a comprehensive update on the major advances in internal medicine, while earning continuing education credits and learning from highly regarded clinicians, educators, and researchers.
