CME “Saturdays” Run January Through May 2011
STONY BROOK, N.Y., January 3, 2011 – Faculty from Stony Brook University Medical Center’s Departments of Surgery and Medicine are running a free 2011 program offering community physicians and surgeons free continuing medical education (CME) opportunities. Called CME Saturday Seminars, the series runs through much of 2011 and features focused updates by faculty from the Department of Surgery representing specialty fields such as pediatric, vascular, colorectal, and head & neck surgery, in collaboration with their colleagues in the Department of Medicine.
CME Saturdays are held the second Saturday of each month, from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. Each seminar offers 2 CME credits and brings area physicians together to share their knowledge and learn about emerging techniques and procedures, with an emphasis on new options available for patients.
The 2011 program kicks off on January 8 with a program titled “Otolaryngology—Head & Neck Surgery / Endocrinology & Metabolism.” This CME seminar features a presentation on minimally invasive surgery for thyroid and parathyroid disease, as well as the application of endoscopic sialoscopy, and a discussion on the medical aspects of thyroid and parathyroid disease.
Other scheduled CME Saturdays for 2011 are: General Surgery / General Medicine & Geriatrics (February 12), Colorectal Surgery / Gastroenterology & Hepatology (March 12), Pediatric Surgery / Pediatrics (April 9), and Vascular Surgery / Nephrology (May 14).
