Medical Education: 2015 College Freestanding Postgraduate Courses

It is the mission of the College to advance women’s health care through the lifelong education of its members as well as other physicians. One of the many ways we accomplish that is through our freestanding postgraduate courses, which are held in various locations throughout the United States. Experts in their fields are selected to create and disseminate the most current advances in obstetrics and gynecology. This year we will span the areas of women’s health care from “Practical Obstetrics and Gynecology” to “Controversies in Ob/Gyn in Spanish.” 

Practical Obstetrics and Gynecology
Beginning in the nation’s Capital, Patrick Duff, MD, and Jeanne Sheffield, MD, will guide you through the ever-changing field of gynecological care and management of co-occurring health conditions in the female patient. This course is intended for obstetricians-gynecologists, family medicine specialists, nurse midwives, and nurse practitioners. It will cover the topics of prenatal diagnosis, obstetric infections, and evaluation of life-threatening conditions such as septic shock and necrotizing fasciitis.

Update in Cervical Diseases
In Chicago, Mark Spitzer, MD, and his faculty will update clinicians on the recent changes in the new unified screening guidelines, new consensus terminology for lower anogenital tract squamous disease, and the new management guidelines that were developed for cytological and histological abnormalities.

Advanced Ob-Gyn Ultrasound with Practical Application
James Shwayder, MD, will have San Diego as the backdrop for this course designed for the practicing physician or sonographer. The new requirements for basic ultrasound evaluation in pregnancy as well as the proper ultrasound coding and liability will be discussed. There will be small group sessions to allow for personal interaction with the faculty.

This and much more is being offered to keep your learning momentum going throughout the year. Visit ACOG’s Upcoming Postgraduate Courses to learn more.
