Although pulmonary Hypertension (PH) is a progressive and potentially fatal and debilitating disease, we do have effective (non-curative) therapies. PH is commonly encountered by pulmonologists, cardiologists, rheumatologists, pediatricians, and internal medicine healthcare providers. There is a tremendous need for education of licensed care providers regarding how to evaluate patients with PH especially in the presence of other comorbidities including lung, left heart, or rheumatologic diseases. Proper classification of PH continues to be a challenging area. Responses from attendees of prior Yale Pulmonary Hypertension Symposium have also reinforced the need for more education on the topic.

Yale School of Medicine and the New England AIDS Education and Training Center - Local Partner Yale AIDS Program (NEAETC) are holding the symposium on Saturday, June 9, 2018 at YNHH Park Street Auditorium in New Haven, CT.

Please note the date change to June 2018. This live activity is approved for a maximum of 8.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.

Provisions of the Connecticut General Statutes require that physicians applying for license renewal in the state of Connecticut must participate in at least 1 hour of accredited CME in infectious diseases (including but not limited to HIV/AIDS); risk management (including controlled substances and pain management); sexual assault; domestic violence; cultural competence; and behavioral health, including newly required as of January 1, 2016, the topic of mental health conditions common to veterans and family members of veterans. As a CME provider for physicians in the state of Connecticut it is important for Yale CME to provide opportunities that meet the state-required topics. Therefore, along with the Connecticut-Local Partner of the New England AIDS Education and Training Center, Yale CME has developed this full-day course that will not only meet the state mandated course requirements to be relicensed, but will also provide valuable information for physicians and other health care providers in the state. It is highly recommended that physician assistants (PAs) and advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) participate in this educational activity to review the latest updates in the aforementioned topics as these topics are required for re-licensure. (For full details on your re-licensure requirements, please contact the CT DPH).
