We will again offer a specific Pre-Conference, an “Advanced Sexual Assault Medical-Forensic Course for Physicians,” on May 12 & 13. This ACEP Category I CME approved course has been well received by physicians, residents and program directors across the country and it concentrates not only on up-to date necessary clinical forensic skills, but important sexual assault program medical director, court room and legal issues. This intense 2 day presentation is taught by physician colleagues with over 50 years of experience in these medical-forensic areas.
