2010 marks the 41st year of OHSU's primary care Continuing Medical Education (CME) conference. This year, the four-day conference attracted the largest number of attendees in its history. About 330 learners and 65 faculty members assembled at the Portland Governor Hotel over four days. While 70% of the attendees are from Oregon, 15 states and the Territory of Guam were also represented at the conference this year. 

Attendees came from a wide range of specialty areas including family medicine, general internal medicine, emergency medicine, urgent care, geriatrics and ob-gyn, and represent many provider types – physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and more. The curriculum focused on practical, clinically-relevant information designed to promote changes in practice and improved patient care.
