OVERALL OBJECTIVES: Following this course, the participant should be able to identify the etiologies, epidemiologies and presenting clinical manifestations of the disorders described; implement a differential diagnosis and laboratory assessment plans; outline the therapeutic intervention, possible complications and preventive measures. 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.

When indicated in the specific objectives, emphasis will be on aligning physician behavior with current guidelines and evidence-based medicine with a focus on diagnosis, treatment and when to refer. In consideration of our aging population, a physician is expected to be competent in the fundamentals of Geriatric Medicine and rely upon a specialist only when absolutely necessary; therefore, this course was designed as a review and update for all practitioners at the level of a practicing physician.
