The purpose of the American Medical Seminars, Inc. CME Program is to develop and deliver clinically relevant, evidence-based CME activities in an effort to align physician behavior with current clinical guidelines and the evidence to improve their competence and the care they provide their patients.
Primary Care Practitioners such as Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Emergency Medicine, General Practice and even Specialists who would like practical and clinically relevant reviews and updates in Primary Care Medicine.
Overall Program Objectives
On this website you will see seventeen (17) areas of Primary Care Medicine represented. The overall objective is to provide the participant with practical and clinically relevant information. Upon completion of these CME activities, through the use of clinical case vignettes emphasizing Guidelines and Evidence-Based Medicine, the physician or healthcare provider should be able to formulate a differential, make a diagnosis and develop a plan for the prevention and/or therapeutic management of the various disorders presented. Each CME activity has its own set of objectives, which are available upon request, included in each syllabus and accessible through this website.
Format And Educational Design
All CME activities are a lecture and problem-based learning format utilizing an audience response system with interactive case vignettes and Q&A sessions for each topic while focusing on practical issues in clinical medicine. Small classroom-style sessions, averaging 70 in attendance, maximize the opportunity for participants to interact with the faculty.
Scheduling And Site
Popular morning sessions allow participants time for study, reflection, family activities, relaxation, and recreation. All CME activities are held Monday - Friday from 8:00am-12:15pm.* All CME activities are on-site at the Hyatt Regency Sarasota in Sarasota, Florida.
