Each day, the participants will attend general and concurrent sessions related to their areas of interest. Each session will conclude with a question and answer period led by the presenter(s).Throughout the lectures and question and answer periods, faculty members utilize an Audience Response System. The faculty uses these group responses to readdress items not answered correctly by the target goal percentage. This immediate feedback helps course attendees identify their own weaknesses and allows them to follow up with the faculty onsite.
Pattern Recognition/Case Sessions:
Intense and interactive exposure to multiple vulvovaginal cases and cervical cases help to sharpen assessment and biopsy placement skills. Over 500 different vulvovaginal and cervical images are presented during the span of a given course, allowing learners to practice recognition of various vulvovaginal and cervical conditions. Interactive sessions on the techniques and procedures used in the screening and management of lower genital tract conditions are conducted.
Interactive Case Study Sessions:
Several interactive sessions will be used throughout the course to test medical knowledge and practice-based learning skills on various vulvar, vaginal and cervical conditions. Participants, in conjunction with faculty leadership, will review cases, vote on their diagnosis and discuss what management and treatment course they would pursue and why.
For selected topics, learners will direct questions to panels of experts on how to integrate reported advances into their practices. The faculty will present their evidence-based perspectives so that learners can determine what may be best practice in their clinical settings.
