Past Astute Clinician Lectures

The Astute Clinician Lecture Series
The Astute Clinician Lecture was established through a gift from the late Dr. Robert W. Miller and his wife, Haruko. It honors a US scientist who has observed an unusual clinical occurrence, and by investigating it, has opened an important new avenue of research.

Continuing Medical Education (CME) activities offered by NIH are jointly sponsored in partnership with The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Office of CME.

The WALS is intended for advanced students and practitioners in biomedical fields, healthcare professionals, and doctoral-level scientists who seek to update and broaden their understanding of contemporary biomedical research and the environment in which it is conducted.

Activity Description: The Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series provides a mechanism to stay abreast of state-of-the-art biomedical and health research.

Intended Audience: All physicians, allied health professionals and non-clinical scientists, as well as the general public, are invited to attend the Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series.

Objectives: After attending the activity, participants will be able to: (1) define options, alternatives, and new practices that will guide the conduct of research; (2) evaluate practical information presented about laboratory, clinical, and population-based research principles based on state-of-the-art scientific discovery and achievements; and (3) analyze information and opportunities to increase and improve collaboration among investigators and move scientific frontiers forward.
