Event Overview
Welcome message:

Changing patterns of medical practice are placing greater responsibility on primary care clinicians. Increasingly difficult management decisions must now be made in the ambulatory setting. Primary care clinicians must be increasingly competent in office skills and procedures more commonly associated with specialist practice. At the same time, many specialty-trained physicians, particularly obstetrician/gynecologists, traditionally trained internists and medical subspecialists are being asked to play an expanding their role in primary care practice. Nurse practitioners and physician assistants are also playing an ever-increasing role. This course is designed to provide a comprehensive core curriculum in adult primary care. The course will serve as an excellent update and review for current primary care physicians and other primary care professionals and as an opportunity for specialists to expand their primary care knowledge and skills.

Particular emphasis will be placed on principles of primary care, office-based preventive medicine, practical management of the most common problems seen in primary care practice, and expanded skills in clinical examination and common office procedures. Special emphasis will be placed on examination, procedural skills and clinical problem solving in dermatology, gynecology and women’s health, orthopaedics and sports medicine, substance abuse, clinical nutrition, and health communication skills. The course will utilize formal lectures, hands-on workshops, case discussions, an audience response system, and questions and answers. A detailed syllabus will be provided for all participants.

This course is presented by the Division of General Internal Medicine, Department of Medicine and is sponsored by the Office of Continuing Medical Education, University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine.


The purpose of this course is to increase competence and improve clinician practice in primary care. We specifically anticipate improvements in skills and strategies to:

  • Implement new guidelines in office-based preventive medicine including cancer screening and management of cardiac risk factors;
  • Develop strategies to care for common office problems including hypertension, lipid disorders, CHF, COPD, diabetes, HIV, head injuries, overuse injuries, and atrial fibrillation;
  • Manage common problems in women’s health including contraception, menopause, amenorrhea, PCOS, STI’s, and office gynecological procedures;
  • Diagnose and treat common skin disorders and skin cancer;
  • Counsel patients to lose weight, increase physical activity, and address issues of substance abuse;
  • Perform an effective problem-focused history and physical examination for evaluation and treatment of dermatologic, gynecologic, and musculoskeletal complaints;
  • Perform common office procedures in dermatology, gynecology and sports medicine, •Counsel patients about diet, nutritional supplements, and smoking cessation;
  • Communicate with patients and their families, particularly those with low English proficiency and/or health literacy
  • Advocate for high quality for all patients, especially the most vulnerable
  • Increase quality and decrease costs in medical practice.
