The Urology Centers of Alabama CME conference "But I'm Not a Urologist! Urology for the PCP" was held in April at the Grand Bohemian Hotel in Mountain Brook. Dr. Mark DeGuenther, Dr. Brian Christine, Jason Biddy and Marcie Prescott served as the conference planning committee.
The event was attended by over 90 physicians, mid-level providers and nurses and was kicked off with a reception for physicians, attendees, and exhibitors on the Friday evening prior to the conference.
"The physicians at Urology Centers of Alabama are proud to be leaders in the field of Urologic care and used this conference as an opportunity to educate PCP's regarding a broad range of topics affecting patients from Alabama and beyond every day," DeGuenther said. "In addition, we were able to share our passion for excellence and our commitment to offering our community the most up-to-date, compassionate Urologic care possible."
"The conference was geared towards our primary care colleagues," Christine said. "The goals were to give information of value and of practical use helping PC physicians diagnose and, when appropriate, treat common urologic problems. We wanted to help primary care practitioners understand when to refer and to enlighten our audience as to current trends, and controversies, in urology."
