PAMED PRESIDENT CHARLES CUTLER,

The HOD also featured an Oct. 22 inaugural event
during which Charles Cutler, MD, MACP, an internal
medicine specialist from Norristown, was sworn in as the
167th president of PAMED. Read an excerpt from Dr.
Cutler's speech at www.pamedsoc.org/CutlerSpeech.

leadership positions at the HOD. Learn more at www.

ANNUAL EDUCATION CONFERENCE
TACKLES ISSUES LIKE VALUE-BASED
CARE
The Annual Education Conference (AEC) component
of this year's event served as a complement to the activities
of the HOD. Sessions addressing roles and skills needed
by physicians of the future, MACRA, and approaches
to chronic pain management were well-attended and
provided physicians with guidance on navigating the
challenges they face in their daily practice. More than 200
physicians attended this year's AEC, taking advantage of the
opportunity to earn up to 10 credits of CME per person.
Several physicians who attended the conference
stopped by PAMED's CME exhibit table and took
advantage of the chance to use the technology on hand to
complete PAMED's existing online child abuse recognition
and reporting training course, which meets the state's
requirements for license renewal. The child abuse reporting
training course is available online at www.pamedsoc.org/
childabusecme.
Fourteen medical students participated in PAMED's
first ever Health Care Topics Debate. The audience earned
CME by judging the strength of arguments on the following
topics:
* Should medical marijuana be legal in Pennsylvania?
* Should we eliminate the use of opioids to treat
chronic, non-cancer pain?
* Should public funds focus more on understanding
disease mechanisms or on social determinants?
Eighteen residents also participated in the annual poster
contest. Learn more at www.pamedsoc.org/PosterContest.
