Overview

Clinicians providing primary care encounter a wide range of medical conditions in their day-to-day practice. It can seem overwhelming to stay current on the evaluation and treatment of such a wide variety of conditions. The University Of Kentucky Department Of Family and Community Medicine & Kentucky Children’s Hospital Pediatrics serves the needs of primary care professionals across the country by recognizing the need for high quality life-long learning for inter-professional healthcare providers through continuing education. This Family Medicine Review course is one of the longest running courses in the nation and has gained national recognition. Participants can earn AMA Category 1 Credits™ and AAFP prescribed credit (determination pending) in one setting.

The University of Kentucky Department of Pediatrics is now offering our annual Contemporary Pediatrics conference on the final two days of the Family Medicine Review. These two days provide the same pediatric-specific content that pediatricians have come to expect from Contemporary Pediatrics and can be taken as a stand-alone conference. As always, Contemporary Pediatrics will cover a spectrum of general pediatrics and pediatric subspecialty topics that will serve the educational needs of pediatric primary care providers.

The goal of this program is to provide information from a variety of topics covered in Family Medicine & Pediatrics.
