Intensive Review Course
August 11-13, 2022
AAHPM’s Intensive Review Course is designed to facilitate a framework for physicians to prepare for the hospice and palliative medicine certification board examination as outlined in the 2022 Hospice and Palliative Medicine Certification Examination Blueprint.
This intensive review is further intended to advance the knowledge, diagnostic reasoning, and clinical judgment skills, attitudes, and strategies of physicians and advanced practice providers practicing hospice and palliative medicine.
Content is focused on the ability to make appropriate diagnostic and clinical decisions that have important consequences for patients and families experiencing serious and complex illnesses.
This course is planned for in-person attendance only. It will be recorded and made available at a later date.
