  CLINICAL INFECTIOUS DISEASE 2002: Fifth Annual Management Review for the Practicing Physician  
  November 06, 2001


  Center for Bio-Medical Communication, Inc. (CBC), Crowne Plaza Manhattan, New York, New York, USA
March 14-17, 2002

The field of infectious disease is in constant flux. While some diseases are close to eradication, new disease entities suddenly appear and others reemerge, owing to changing public health circumstances or the development of drug resistance. It is difficult for even the most conscientious practitioner to be well versed in the literature, interact with colleagues in teaching and learning settings, and fulfill daily professional obligations. The continuous advances in diagnostic techniques and therapeutic alternatives make it crucial for the practicing physician to be current on such information to provide the patient with optimal care. This course is designed to provide an update in important areas, utilizing a faculty of nationally recognized experts who can communicate practical advice to clinicians. Special case history sessions will afford attendees the opportunity to learn from practical application of theories and therapeutic techniques, as well as a chance to interface with faculty and peers.

The clinical physician will be provided with a comprehensive update of practical and clinically relevant information, with a special focus on new therapeutic alternatives. The course will enable participants to
Understand the clinical importance of new disease entities
Review and assess recent advances in diagnostic techniques
Evaluate the latest management and treatment modalities
Differentiate among the new antibiotics and discuss their most effective use
Share a perspective and overview of controversial issues in diagnosis and therapy
