This course will offer the learner an opportunity to gain high yield information on multiple MFM topics in a concentrated session. Each talk will be presented by expert faculty and will last 15 minutes. There will also be multiple Q&A sessions to discuss areas of controversy with the speakers and participants. This session will be helpful for fellows-in-training and MFM specialists looking for a concise review of controversial subjects, topics lacking clear evidence or guidelines, or areas where new evidence suggests a need for change in management.
