Wisconsin Update in Geriatric Medicine and Board Review Course
Maintenance of Certification Learning Session
The Wisconsin Update in Geriatric Medicine and Board Review Course, sponsored by the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health and the Medical College of Wisconsin, will host a Maintenance of Certification Learning Session that will feature the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) geriatrics knowledge module. The Learning Session will be held on Wednesday, September 11, 2013 from 2 pm to 4:30 pm at the Grand Geneva Resort in Lake Geneva, WI.
The primary purpose of the Learning Sessions is to facilitate completion of ABIM medical knowledge modules by board-certified internists and subspecialists of internal medicine in order for them to receive Maintenance of Certification credit. Learning Sessions are conducted in an interactive group setting with educational support, and are led by ABIM-certified physicians.
Participants who are enrolled in ABIM’s Maintenance of Certification program can order a copy of the geriatrics module from ABIM’s website, www.abim.org, and transfer and submit the answers discussed during the Learning Session to ABIM for scoring. Participants will have access to a score report that confirms whether or not the module was completed successfully. Those who complete the module successfully will receive 10 points for completing a 25-question module toward ABIM’s Self-Evaluation of Medical Knowledge requirement for Maintenance of Certification. You must be enrolled in ABIM’s Maintenance of Certification program to submit completed medical knowledge modules for scoring, feedback reports, and eligibility to receive Maintenance of Certification points and AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™.
