The purpose of this meeting is to provide attendees with clinically relevant information about the rapidly changing updates and clinical practice guidelines and has been designed to update regional primary care providers on advances in a variety of internal medicine topics with a dual focus on improving their own clinical practice and highlighting the referral expertise of The Medical College of Wisconsin. 

We want to share our specialized medical knowledge to increase the quality of practice by community physicians and to make them aware of when they should contact an academic medical center for specialized care of their patients.
