Long Block - Advanced Ambulatory Practice Conference Series
During Long Block you will meet Wednesday mornings from 7:30 to 9 a.m. for the Advanced Ambulatory Practice Conference Series.
Topics in the first half of the year are chosen by the faculty and represent the most important things to know about ambulatory medicine. Topics later in the year are chosen by you.
We use multiple teaching and learning modalities with one common theme—active participation by the learner with minimization of passive learning techniques.
For example, during the diabetes portion of the curriculum you will learn to count carbs, take your own fingerstick blood sugars and inject insulin.
During the COPD sessions you will review PFTs as if you are the official readers. Most presentations are case-based, and you will leave with new skills you can directly apply to patient care.
This conference series is among the highest rated in the entire UC Department of Internal Medicine.
