A Primary Care CME Alaskan cruise has always been one of our top requests and we are excited to be able to provide this opportunity along with an excellent agenda and faculty lineup. -- Barbara Lyons, VP CEC

The 2nd Annual Internal Medicine in Primary Care Conference is designed to update primary care clinicians in rapidly changing therapeutic areas. The emphasis is on practical and useful information for clinical practice. This conference runs from May 26-June 2, 2017 on the Royal Caribbean’s Explorer of the Seas while cruising Alaska and British Columbia.

As a result of this conference, participants will be able to assess and provide patients with an accurate diagnosis and optimal care for a broad range of disorders seen in primary care, utilize current guidelines in the diagnosis and management of commonly encountered therapeutic issues and formulate comprehensive evidence-based interventions and treatment strategies that will lead to the reduction of modifiable risk factors and improved long term outcomes.

Barbara Lyons, VP of Continuing Education Company says "A Primary Care CME Alaskan cruise has always been one of our top requests and we are excited to be able to provide this opportunity along with an excellent agenda and faculty lineup."

The agenda will include lectures by Roger Seheult, MD on pulmonology, David Plourd on women's health, Richard Usatine, MD on dermatology and Donald Dipette, MD on cardiology issues. All talks are tailored to help primary care, family medicine and internal medicine physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners. All lectures will be while the ship is at sea and attendees can claim up to 20 credits, depending on how many hours they attend.

The cruise itinerary includes Alaska's Inside Passage, Juneau, Skagway, Tracy Arm Fjord, and Victoria, BC (leaving from Seattle, WA).
