6th Annual Acing the GI Exam: The Ultimate Crunch-Time Course is organized by Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and will be held from Sep 18 - 19, 2021 at The Hotel at Avalon, Autograph Collection, Alpharetta, Georgia, United States of America. Target Audience: Specialties - Gastroenterology, Hepatology Accreditation: Credit Designation Statement: Cedars-Sinai Medical Center designates this Live Activity and Preparation course for GI Board Exam for a maximum of 12.50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. ABIM MOC Recognition Statement: Successful completion of this CME activity, which includes participation in the evaluation component, enables the participant to earn up to 12.50 Medical Knowledge MOC points in the American Board of Internal Medicine's (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. Participants will earn MOC points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity. It is the CME activity provider's responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC credit. Credits: AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™ (MD, DO) (12.50 hours), Non-Physician Attendance (RN, NP, PA and Others) (12.50 hours), ABIM MOC Part 2 (12.50 hours) Overview: This interactive, didactic experience serves as a review to aid the clinical practice for gastroenterologists, hepatologists, advanced practice providers and gastroenterology fellows to aid in patient management, including virtually all aspects of clinical gastroenterology, hepatology and endoscopy. This course has been developed to meet the educational needs of practicing gastroenterologists and GI fellows who wish to test their knowledge of specific GI topics in preparation for earning points toward the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program, or who simply want to improve their knowledge of gastrointestinal diseases and disorders to enhance the quality of their practice. The course will follow the blueprint developed by the American Board of Internal Medicine. Each content category – esophagus, stomach/duodenum, liver, biliary tract, pancreas, small intestine and colon – will explore anatomy, development and function/physiology; symptoms/clinical presentation; and the diseases and disorders in each. This will include the use of endoscopy, including colonoscopy, ERCP and EUS. Participants will have the option of earning up to 12.5 MOC points with successful completion of a self-assessment module. A distinguishing feature of this conference is the fact that the course content is delivered over the course of only one and a half days. The course directors for this conference recognize that long and detailed discussions that are not directly relevant to board and re-certification exams should be eliminated. Conversely, many board review manuals provide lists and bullet points that lack sufficient background and context. To address the needs of busy gastroenterologists, this conference will present high-yield information in the most rational, relevant and contextually appropriate format. This is a time-tested approach that has led to wide dissemination and success of the speakers’ own textbook series, which serves as a blueprint for this educational offering. This course also serves as an intense review of gastroenterology and hepatology to enhance the clinical practice of all GI providers. Objectives: • Identify risk factors for and apply strategies to prevent gastrointestinal and hepatobiliary disorders • Retain and apply clinical “pearls” to diagnose complex GI disorders and identify and integrate therapeutic options based on pathophysiology, classification, guidelines and best clinical practice recommendations • Demonstrate competence in certification and recertification exams in gastroenterology as required by the American Board of Internal Medicine
