OVERALL OBJECTIVES: Following this course, the participant should be able to recognize the epidemiology and classify commonly presenting infectious diseases; identify the clinical manifestations, pathogenesis and methods of diagnosing the presenting diseases; and apply the current recommendations of pharmacologic management, referral or follow-up and prevention. This activity is expected to result in improved competence in making appropriate diagnosis and providing effective treatment and referral or follow-up care with the overall goal of improving patient outcomes.

The emphasis will be on aligning physician behavior with current guidelines and evidence-based medicine, as indicated within each topic’s specific objectives. Since Infectious Diseases is a specialty field of medicine that affects all areas of Primary Care to include: FM, IM, EM and Pediatrics, this course was designed to cover the spectrum of Infectious Diseases essential to all practicing physicians.
