“Come join us for an in-depth Women’s Imaging CME program in the beautiful Napa Valley October 5-10,” says Kimberly Ray, MD, course co-Chair for Women’s Imaging in Wine Country.
A number of UCSF faculty members will present a comprehensive Women’s Imaging program in California’s Napa Valley on October 5-10, 2014. Presenters Vickie Feldstein, MD, Kimberly Ray, MD, Bonnie Joe, MD, PhD, Mindy Goldman, MD, Maureen Kohi, MD, Tara Morgan, MD, Andrew Phelps, MD, Edward Sickles, MD and Lori Strachowski, MD, and guest speakers Maitray Patel, MD, (Chief of Ultrasound at the Mayo Clinic, AZ) and Jessica Leung, MD (Director of the Breast Health Center at California Pacific Medical Center, San Francisco) will cover a range of topics to help radiologists address challenges and advances in the field of Women’s Imaging.
These topics include diagnostic tips and practical applications; practice management, updates on evolving imaging regulations in breast imaging, gynecology and pregnancy; and interesting and challenging breast and obstetrical cases (presented as ‘unknowns’) which will allow participants to enhance their diagnostic skills. UCSF designates this activity for a maximum of 23.75 AMA PRA Category 1 credits. An opportunity for completion of 9.0 Self-Assessment credits will be offered at this course.
The course will be held at the rejuvenating Marriott Hotel & Spa in the Napa Valley, centrally located in the inland area just east of the California coastal region. The Marriott Hotel is four miles north of downtown Napa at the south end of the wine trail and only 16 miles east of downtown Sonoma. Travelling north from the culturally rewarding town of Napa are the towns of Yountville, St. Helena and Calistoga, each of which is home to several wineries, as well as a wonderful mix of crafts shops, great restaurants, destination spas, farmers markets, shopping, golf and other recreational activities.
With the gorgeous fall colors and warm weather, it’s the perfect season to visit the area and update your skills in Women’s Imaging.
