Intensive Board Review Course
This course will not be held in 2017.
This successful course was held in late July 2016 in Pittsburgh, PA. It was been completely redesigned to provide you with a learning experience that reviews content for the American Board of Medical Specialties Hospice and Palliative Medicine certification examination and includes exam-type questions. It will start with a plenary session and include didactic presentations with audience response questions, break-out sessions, the opportunity to dine with esteemed faculty and peers, and materials for study. If it's time for your recertification, this is the course for you.
