OBJECTIVES

For 42 years, we have designed our Family Medicine Update to meet the educational needs of the practicing family physician. Our program changes yearly based on the comments and suggestions of our participants. We seek out dynamic lecturers to impart current information appropriate for the busy, office-based primary care practitioner.
