Seminar Overview/Statement of Purpose:
PES is fortunate to have dental and medical practitioners representing a variety of specialties participating in the CME/CE sessions. PES understands the importance of offering inter-professional healthcare education, allowing colleagues to gain cross-specialty perspectives and updates in the treatment and prevention of disease. The need to adapt best practice models in the context of emerging healthcare reforms impacting patient care delivery and access to care is an important issue for all healthcare practitioners.
Changing population demographics and increasing chronic disease patterns are key factors impacting primary healthcare practice and delivery in the Pacific Rim area. Confronting the challenges of delivering quality patient care in the face of these emerging changes is fast becoming a global issue for medical practitioners.
Family Practice physicians in the US, Australia and New Zealand share these challenges. Community healthcare development in both areas reflects the need to establish new best practice protocols dealing with the increasing longevity of human populations and the growth of geriatric and palliative care needs. In addition, providing better prevention and treatment strategies addressing obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer is a continuing challenge for both areas.
Now, more than ever, it is important for medical professionals to collaborate with colleagues and global counterparts to gain cross-cultural perspectives and updates in the treatment and prevention of disease. By design, this program offers opportunities for professionals to compare and contrast current best practices to provide quality patient care and outcomes in their own professional setting.
Planned In Country Healthcare Topics Include:
Seminar Titles: “Updates in General Medicine/Primary Care: A Year in Review”, “Updates in Travel Medicine”, and “Update in Women’s Health”
Dr. Donald Stillwagon is a graduate of Rutgers University and earned his MD at State University of New York-Downstate Medical School.

Educational Goals: Our goal is to provide unparalleled CME/CE travel opportunities for healthcare professionals that combine their most passionate destination desires with their educational goals, fostering exceptional learning experiences, friendships and connections with national and international colleagues.
Learning Objectives: Keep abreast of rapid expansion of medical knowledge and current best practice models on multiple topics to facilitate change and thus provide continually excellent patient care.
By design, this program permits medical experts to collaborate with colleagues and international counterparts to realize cross cultural view points and updates within the treatment and prevention of disease and offers opportunities to compare and contrast current best practices to supply quality patient care and outcomes in their own professional setting
