Hopkins GIM: What's New

Philip A. Tumulty Topics in Clinical Medicine

The 52nd annual Philip A. Tumulty Topics in Clinical Medicine course will take place May 7-11, 2007. This 5-day course will present advances in Internal Medicine in areas of general clinical interest as they relate to the diagnosis and management of disease. Dr. John Flynn and his co-directors (Drs. D. William Schlott, Lisa A. Simonson, Daniel J. Brotman, and Myron L.Weisfeldt, Director of the Department of Medicine) invite all faculty members to participate.

The Topics in Clinical Medicine course began 52 years ago with the late Dr. Philip Tumulty's belief that a faculty should communicate not only its professional expertise, but also its collegiality and warmth.  To maximize the intermingling between faculty and guests, Dr. Tumulty held the course at Hopkins and provided daily lunches with the faculty.  Topics remains a course dedicated to providing the best summaries of the medical advances and to extending the hospitality of Johns Hopkins' faculty. 

New for 2007: The course features a Hospitalist Day. A first in the course's tradition, Hospitalist Day will take place on Tuesday, May 8, 2007 and will feature speakers and topics specifically addressing in-patient clinical problems. 

Our course offers small interactive groups to discuss areas of clinical medicine, and we have continued our popular "Meet-The-Professor" and "Lunch-With-The-Professor" sessions.  Our program will also include Medical Grand Rounds, Osler's Greatest Hits, and Tumulty Rounds. The course's social event will take place at the Sports Legends Museum at Camden Yards.
