Special to the Daily News



Lincoln Memorial University-DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine (LMU-DCOM) and Farragut ENT and Allergy will host “ENT for the Primary Care Practitioner,” a Continuing Medical Education (CME) conference, on Dec. 3 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Provision Learning and Innovation Center (1415 Old Weisgarber Road, Suite 300) in Knoxville, Tennessee.

Many common ear, nose and throat (ENT) conditions can be managed at the primary health care level with the potential for decreasing the financial burden on patients, hospitals and specialty referrals, and for improving quality of care. This targeted CME program features cost-effective procedural learning, demonstrations and take-home tools to enhance the practitioner’s knowledge, skills and competence in clinical practice.
