Description


The Brigham Board Review in Pulmonary Medicine course is designed to update overall knowledge and improve clinical competence-based practice gaps in Pulmonary Medicine that are linked and/or derived from American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) certification/recertification requirements for Pulmonary Medicine.  Relevant topics are addressed in ‘board review/case-based practice formats’ via multi-media access (DVD/CD/MP Formats) for distance learning. Learners will apply the knowledge and strategies gained through participation in this activity to the Board exam and daily clinical practice.
 
 

Intended Audience


The primary group of learners will be fellows/trainees and practicing Pulmonary specialists (MDs) and other professional affiliates (internists with an interest in Pulmonology) who are preparing to take ABIM Board Review or Recertification Examinations or who seek CME activities to improve patient care in the area of Pulmonary Medicine.
