Continuing Medical Education Conferences in Bermuda
NYU's Clinical Imaging Symposium in Bermuda is organized by NYU Langone Health Department of Radiology and will be held from Jul 22 - 26, 2019 at Fairmont Southampton, Southampton, Bermuda. Target Audience: This course is designed for practicing clinical radiologists in academics or private practice. Accreditation: Accreditation Statement: The NYU School of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians. Credit Designation Statement: The NYU School of Medicine designates this live activity for a maximum of 21 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. SELF ASSESSMENT MODULES (SAMs) This program will include 7.5 SAM credits. Pending Approval from the ABR PART 2 of MOC: Lifelong Learning and Self-assessment At least 75 AMA Category 1 CME credits are required every 3 years. A minimum of 70 percent must be in diagnostic radiology or related areas, with the remaining 30 percent either in clinically related areas or in relevant topics such as risk assessment, ethics, statistics, the processes of continuous quality improvement, methodologies of outcomes measurement, etc. At least 25 of the 75 Category 1 CME credits must be self-assessment CME (SA-CME) (which includes SAMs). In addition to ABR prequalified SAMs, the ABR will count all AMA Category 1 CME activities in "enduring materials" (including web-based and print) and "journal-based CME" formats toward the MOC self-assessment requirement. Course Description: The practice of radiology is constantly evolving and it is essential to stay up-to-date with the latest imaging protocols (MRI, CT, X-ray and US) and clinical interpretation. Clinical radiologists must understand and apply advanced imaging techniques in their practice for state-of-the art patient care. A wide range of topics will be covered in this program focusing on Neuroradiology, Abdominal/Women's, Musculoskeletal, Thoracic and Breast Imaging. Selected topics will include: imaging gastrointestinal emergencies, shoulder/elbow imaging and procedures, approach to imaging intracranial masses, approach to interstitial lung disease on HRCT and digital breast tomosynthesis. Additionally, CT radiation dosage techniques/protocols and MR contrast safety will be discussed throughout the program to illustrate how to optimize imaging and maintain diagnostic quality. Educational Objectives: • Describe the new Ovarian-Adnexal Reporting Lexicon for Ultrasound developed by the ACR O-RADs committee as it applies to evaluating adnexal masses, in order to provide more consistent interpretations and improve quality and communication of imaging reports with referring clinicians. • Describe the physics of permeability (GRASP) imaging and its clinical utility with respect to imaging the pituitary gland and brain tumors. • Understand the new American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) Staging System for breast cancer and salient changes from the older staging system, in order to provide the most relevant diagnostic imaging reporting. • Explain the Fleischner Society recommendations for the diagnostic criteria of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, as well as the role of HRCT in the multidisciplinary diagnosis of interstitial lung disease.
Oncologic Imaging: What the Radiologist Needs to Know is organized by Penn Radiology CME and will be held from Oct 14 - 17, 2019 at Hamilton Princess & Beach Club - A Fairmont Managed Hotel, Hamilton, Bermuda. Target Audience: This CME activity is designed to educate diagnostic imaging physicians who perform and interpret imaging examinations. The content will also be beneficial to breast surgeons, neurologists, gynecologists, and gastroenterologists who order imaging procedures. Accreditation: Physician Continuing Medical Education: The Postgraduate Institute for Medicine designates this live activity for a maximum of 20 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. The credit breakdown by day: Day 1 - 5.0 Day 2 - 5.25 Day 3 - 5.0 Day 4 - 4.75 The total hours covered in each modality, excluding breast lectures include: MR: 3.0 | CT: 6.0 | PET/CT: 2.25 | US: 3.0 | PET: 1.5 | NM: 1.5 The total modality hours covered in the breast lectures include: DBT: 1.5 | MRI: 3.0 | DM: 2.25 | US: 2.25 Self-Assessment Modules (SAMs): Participants in this activity will have an opportunity to earn 16 Self-Assessment Credits (SAMs). These modules meet the ABR’s criteria for a self-assessment activity in the ABR Maintenance of Certification program. Description: This four-day course is designed for the general radiologist. We will review the diagnostic imaging evaluation of common tumors, including head and neck, thoracic, and abdominal malignancies. Current state-of-the-art modalities used for oncologic imaging, including CT, MRI, ultrasound, and PET/CT will be discussed, emphasizing the role of imaging in staging, treatment and follow up of these patients. Daily case conferences and the opportunity to earn 16 SAM credits throughout the week will be offered. Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this activity, attendees should be able to: • Discuss the roles of digital breast tomosynthesis and screening breast MR imaging for the detection of breast carcinoma • Apply the ACR appropriateness criteria for the management of gynecomastia, benign disease, and male breast cancer • Identify the imaging findings in the diagnosis and staging of head and neck, esophageal, gastric, colonic, gynecological and genitourinary tract tumors • Describe the normal and abnormal postoperative appearance following oncologic surgery for GI and GU tract tumors • Optimize abdominal CT colonography protocols to diagnose colon carcinoma • Discuss current accepted and reimbursed indications for FDG PET/CT in the surveillance of cancer patients • Explain how to manage incidental findings and avoid pitfalls on PET CT and CT colonography exams • Apply the PET/CT-based tumor response assessment including Deauville, PERCIST and WHO criteria • Solve imaging problems related to the use of MR imaging for head and neck cancer.
The Future of Medicine: Follow Your Heart to Bermuda is organized by Columbia University Department of Medicine and will be held on Feb 15, 2020 at Hamilton Princess & Beach Club - A Fairmont Managed Hotel, Hamilton, Bermuda. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 15 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. Program Overview: Join the Bermuda Heart Foundation along with Physicians from Columbia University, Weill Cornell and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital for a 15 hour* ACCME accredited course that will address a multidisciplinary approach to mental health and well-being with medical insights on cardiology, psychiatry and nephrology. *Please note: 7.0 ACCME credits hours are live, and course attendees can take an additional 8 credits hours online at your leisure. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
