Event Overview
Welcome message:

This year’s 17th Annual Conference on Emergencies in Primary Care has been designed to provide physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, and other health care professionals involved in primary care with evidence-based information on commonly encountered office dilemmas and emergencies, and offers current approaches to clinical management. The primary goal of this conference is to increase knowledge and enhance the competence of attendees. Emphasis will be placed on practical application of the evidence-based topics presented.

Topics for this year’s conference have been selected based on the educational needs determined from the identified professional practice gaps. The gaps were derived from a variety of sources including evaluations and outcomes data from past participants; clinical expert input; Symposia Medicus’ online survey; and other medical and nursing data.

Conference format will include didactic lectures, case studies, and question and answer sessions.

An outstanding faculty has been assembled for this conference. Each member was selected based on their individual area of expertise and ability to communicate current, evidence-based and practical information to participants.

Your participation in this conference will provide you 
an opportunity to share current ideas with colleagues across the country, amidst the excitement of New York City during the holiday season.
