In addition to 10 pharmacology sessions, clinical systems sessions include advanced imaging with differential diagnosis, nutrition and pain management.
Our most popular preconferences offer opportunities for hands-on experiential learning with three- and six-hour sessions providing deeper coverage on topics relevant to practice. For the advanced practice nurse, we offer the API-Dedicated Procedural Cadaver Lab and have added The How’s and Why’s of Extracorporeal Life Support to our rich program.
