Needs Statement

Faculty and trainees within the Department of Medicine who are involved in the care of patients need to receive regular updates on recent advances and guidelines in the field of internal medicine. Clinical scenarios will be used to review the current management of common medical conditions, including chronic pain and opioid abuse.

The overall aim of the series is to advance clinical knowledge, enhance the quality of patient care, and improve treatment outcomes.

Target Audience

Physicians, medical students, fellows, and residents.
