Event Overview
Welcome message:

Continuing Education Company has been organizing its Primary Care Conference Series for the past 25 years. The Primary Care Summer Conference is designed to update primary care clinicians in rapidly changing therapeutic areas. The emphasis is on practical and useful information for clinical practice. Join us this June or July when we hold the 26th Annual Primary Care Summer Conference. This conference will be repeated in two sessions for convenience in scheduling. Sessions I and II will be held at the Kiawah Island Golf Resort in Kiawah Island, South Carolina. Located on a beautiful barrier island just a few miles from historic Charleston, Kiawah Island is ten miles of wide, immaculate, ocean beach on which one - or two - might walk or cycle for hours and hours without interruption. Soothing by day, utterly romantic by night, the beach is complemented by the island’s river, meandering lagoons, and pristine marshlands, and closes each sun washed day safe beneath its own star studded southern sky.

The Primary Care Summer Conference Series offers physicians two date options:

June 25-29, 2018: Session I - Kiawah Island Golf Resort, Kiawah Island, SC

July 2-6, 2018: Session II - Kiawah Island Golf Resort, Kiawah Island, SC


Program Objectives

As a result of this conference, participants will be able to:

Assess and provide patients with an accurate diagnosis and optimal care for a broad range of disorders seen in primary care.

Utilize current guidelines in the diagnosis and management of commonly encountered therapeutic issues.

Formulate comprehensive evidence-based interventions and treatment strategies that will lead to the reduction of modifiable risk factors and improved long term outcomes
