While Baylor College of Medicine makes every effort to have accurate information presented, no warranty, expressed or implied, is offered. The participant should use his/her clinical judgment, knowledge, experience, and diagnostic decision-making before applying any information, whether provided here or by others, for any professional use.
Faculty/presenters have submitted materials for this syllabus for printing in advance so that you may have an outline or summary of the main points of their presentation. Often this differs from the final version of their slides as faculty/ presenters make revisions up until the day of the meeting.
Additionally, some images (cartoons, drawings and some photographs) shown on the screen may not be present in your educational materials because of publishers’ requirements for reprinting of copyrighted images.
