Dear Colleague, Thank you for your interest in the Cleveland Clinic’s virtual 36th Annual Intensive Review of Internal Medicine. We are committed to making this the finest available comprehensive review of internal medicine for physicians preparing for board certification or recertification and for physicians desiring a review of state-of-the-art developments in internal medicine.

This virtual symposium will be conducted by distinguished members of the Cleveland Clinic staff who are renowned in their fields of interest. The symposium has been updated to reflect new developments in the field and incorporate suggestions from prior symposium participants. It will again feature an interactive, computerized audience response system, which will be employed to facilitate audience participation in most lectures.

Topics will cover current concepts and board-related issues using an organ system approach with emphasis placed on relevant clinical information. Lectures will be supplemented by board simulation sessions integrating relevant clinical cases, pathology, and imaging studies.

You will find our comprehensive review of internal medicine to be an outstanding educational experience. Participants in the live stream will also have access to recordings of the presentations for future review. If you have any questions regarding the symposium, please contact us directly at the Cleveland Clinic. We are happy to help.
