BHRT Series – Part III

May 1-3, 2020
Live Stream

The educational process for Part III is both didactic and interactive with maximum audience participation. All of the most complex, interesting, and confusing cases experienced by Dr.Rouzier over the last ten years are presented. The participants decide on the corrective management with literature reviews to guide therapy. Be forewarned, as in the past, many concepts taught in other academies are contrary to the medical literature presented in this course. The attendee will decide therapy based on evidence based guidelines rather than public opinion. Although there are no medical boards for this type of practice, Part III is similar to a medical board that digs deeper into the complexities of age management medicine. Clinical cases will be analyzed to formulate appropriate treatments and management to improve the understanding and level of care provided to patients. In Parts I & II the cases and studies are simple and straightforward.



Part III: Mastering the Protocols for Optimization of Hormone Replacement Therapy - Complex Cases - May 2020

Workshop Schedule Listed for the MST time zone

  • Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
  • Saturday, 8:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
  • Sunday, 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 noon

Syllabus Information

All participants will receive an electronic syllabus with their registration.  A printed syllabus is available for an additional charge of $40.00.  The eSyllabus will be available for download at least one week prior to the course.  An email notification will be sent when it is available for download and will include links and instructions.  This early release provides an opportunity to download and review the materials prior to the course.

The eSyllabus is set up by day and follows the agenda.  The sections are bookmarked so if you click on the bookmark icon to the left of your screen you will see a drop-down and can click on the section you are looking for.  This is helpful if Neal changes the order

PLEASE NOTE: We request you download the material prior to the event as internet access in the meeting room may be limited.  We will also have flash drives available for those that find this easier than downloading.  The syllabus can be saved in Adobe Reader which allows participants to add "sticky  notes" directly on the slide as the speaker is talking. These notes can be saved permanently to your document.  Other recommended applications include iBooks (for apple mobile devices) and iAnnotate (for mobile devices).  Lastly, put perhaps most important for many of us, a printed syllabus is available with an option for good old fashioned note taking.

Pre / Post Testing and Course Evaluation for CME

To help us evaluate changes in knowledge this course has a pre and post test along with a course evaluation.  Please login HERE to take the pre-test prior to the start of the course. You will need to either create an account if this is your first time using the FCM website or login to your already created account.  Once the course if complete the post test and evaluation will be available. 

CME Pre-Test      

The Course code is: BHRT350120P3Y

Notification will be sent out after the course with links to complete the post-test and survey.  Instructions can also be found on the first page of your course syllabus.  The post-test and survey must be completed within one-year in order to claim your credit.  Certificates are available to print once all forms are completed.

Course Registration - Friday through Sunday 

Your login to the Zoom Meeting will serve as your course sign in.  In addition be sure to complete the post-test and evaluation through the Foundation for Care Management's website (www.fcmcme.org).  We will send an email reminder and link after the event and claim credit instructions are on the first page of your course syllabus

For the few of you that are locals to Salt Lake sitting in on the live event I'll send a separate email with details

Live Streaming

We will be sending a Zoom Meeting invite on Monday April 27, 2020.  It will send another reminder 24 hours prior to the start of the event and again one hour before we start.  PLEASE NOTE:  You should receive 3 Zoom invites one for each day.  They are clearly marked with the date and Day 1, Day 2 and Day 3.  You must use the right invite for the correct day.  

Please note this is a live event and will follow the time zone for MST with a start time of 8:00 a.m..  This means if you're in California you start at 7:00 a.m and east coast attendees start at 10:00 am.  Please make a note of this so you are on time.  

This event is streamed live and is not recorded so please keep that in mind.  If you have to leave for part of the event we'd suggest turning on a voice record app or use some other mechanism to get the information as you will not receive a recording.

Detailed instructions for those not familiar with Zoom Meeting will be sent out on Wednesday 2 days prior to the meeting start day.  It will have instructions on how we'd like everyone to utilize the chat and Q and A features along with contact information if you experience difficulty.
