Scientific Program Learning Formats

The Scientific Program is the heart of Internal Medicine Meeting — more than 200 educational offerings which cover the spectrum of internal medicine. Internal Medicine Meeting sessions are organized into the following scientific program learning formats:

Clinical Pearls (CP)

Faculty present brief clinical cases illustrating important teaching points that are relevant to the practicing internist but not widely appreciated. Attendees assess their clinical judgment by using audience-response keypads to answer case-based questions.

Clinical Skills Workshops (CSW)

Most sessions at the Internal Medicine Meeting are held in large rooms that can accommodate anticipated attendance. However, due to close faculty-learner interaction or hands-on-style education, these small-group workshops have a limited number of seats available. Purchase a reserved ticket ($10 per activity) to guarantee admittance to the activities of your choice, at the time you want, and avoid waiting in line. Registration for Waxman Center activities will be open in the fall.

Clinical Triads (CT)

This format builds on the popularity of fast-paced sessions and features three speakers concisely addressing different aspects of an overarching theme. Each session covers topics highly relevant to clinical practice.

Meet the Professor (MTP)

Distinguished faculty analyze controversial issues, recent advances, and new developments in selected topics.

Multiple Small Feedings of the Mind (MSFM)

Faculty provide concise, evidence-based answers to common, yet difficult, patient-management problems. Emphasis is on complex or controversial issues frequently faced by practicing internists.

Panels (PN)

Two or more faculty address different aspects of the selected topic or engage in point–counterpoint discussion.

Slide Shows (SS)

Highly visual presentation of selected topics.

Updates (UD)

Analysis of six to 12 of the year’s most important published papers in the subspecialties and related areas.
