Calendar of activities
The Annual Lillehei Symposium strives to bring the newest and most innovative treatments, research, and interventions to clinicians interested in the care of patients with cardiovascular disease. Over the course of 2 days, presenters address varied sources of cardiac dysfunction that limit the quality and quantity of people’s lives. At the end of the conference, participants have the opportunity to take new and creative ideas back to their individual practice areas.
The conference will focus on current options for immunosuppression (and what’s in the pipeline), with particular attention to individualization of immunosuppression based on clinical and/or laboratory parameters; prevention, diagnosis and treatment of antibody-mediated rejection; improving long-term transplant outcomes; and major issues in transplant-related infectious disease, living donation, and patient-centered care.
This one day conference is filled with hands-on workshops, engaging talks, case discussions, question-and-answer periods, and panel presentations aimed at providing the latest treatment updates and practical solutions for commonly diagnosed sports medicine issues. This year, local and nationally recognized expert presenters will focus on hip pathology, primary care updates, and multiligament knee injuries, culminating with a panel of professional athlete team sports medicine physicians.
This two-day course has been designed to provide enhanced knowledge and skills in the area of dermatology for practicing family physicians and primary care providers. Primary care providers need information on the diagnosis and management of common skin disorders, exposure to the features of serious skin diseases, and an appreciation of a larger scope of clinical presentations of skin cancer. Presentations, focusing on the most common skin disorders seen in primary care, will provide physicians valuable information on diagnosis and treatment of many dermatologic conditions.
Emerging and re-emerging infections continue to challenge clinicians, infection control practitioners and public health officials alike. This continuing education conference, in its 25th year, provides a forum for authoritative presentations and discussions on the epidemiology, prevention, and control of diseases.
