The Updates in Pulmonary Medicine conference is designed as an update and review in a variety of areas related to pulmonary medicine that practitioners may encounter with patients in a primary care and inpatient setting.

Evidence-based lectures will be delivered by academically and clinically oriented faculty and will provide valuable information and insight into situations that are commonly encountered by the primary care physician and hospitalist physician.

This conference is intended to enhance knowledge and improve competency for internal medicine clinicians — both primary care and hospitalists — nurse practitioners, physician assistants and other healthcare professionals who are involved in diagnosing, treating and preventing pulmonary diseases in the general patient population.
