September 20, 2016 Managing Mental Health in Primary Care
Register   Details

The scope of practice for a pediatric PCP includes the care of newborns, infants, children and adolescents. Their responsibilities include management of non-emergency situations, such as preventative care and common medical conditions, as well as assessment of more severe medical conditions and referrals to specialists.

For a variety of reasons, more and more responsibility for the management of mental health concerns is falling to general pediatric health care providers, particularly for issues such as anxiety and depression.

We are pleased to bring together a multi-disciplinary team of experts to discuss the latest information on depressive disorders, anxiety disorders, encopresis and tic disorders, sleep disorders and eating disorders.  We'll also cover their therapeutic and pharmacological implication in the primary care setting.

Register   Details

As a result of this activity, participants will:

  • acquire the new knowledge about the evidence-based advances in the diagnosis, biology and treatments of mood disorders in children, adolescents, adults, and the elderly
  • adopt newer approaches to managing mood disorders, especially treatment-resistant depression
  • collaborate between psychiatrists and primary care providers (pediatricians, family physicians and nurse practitioners, and obstetricians, all of who encounter mood disorders frequently in their practices). A multidisciplinary approach to mood disorders is the optimal model of care.

January 9 - January 13, 2017 Saint Louis University Department of Pathology, 40th Year of Medicolegal Death Investigator Training Course - January 2017
Register   Details

The purpose of this 5 day course is to provide training in medicolegal death investigation. Prior to the institution of this course 40 years ago, there was NO training available for medicolegal death investigators. Mary Fran Ernst and Dr. Gantner developed this training course to provide training for those who were tasked with investigating deaths. Fast forward 40 years, we are still the premier basic trainer for medicolegal death investigators.  Anyone who plays a role in the investigation of medicolegal deaths, whether they be coroners, police officers, homicide detectives or medicolegal death investigators can benefit from this course.  It provides basic information on the key players in a medicolegal death investigation, by providing lectures from practitioners such as medical examiners, toxicolgists, anthropologists, odontologists, crime scene investigators, and homicide investigators on what type of information from the scene should be collected by the death investigator and how that information can help them with the determination of cause and manner of death.  The participants are then given training on how to gather information at various types of death scenes.  The week ends with a review of courtroom techniques and a discussion on social media's impact on next of kin notification.  This week long course can prepare both novice and seasoned investigators to more effectively and efficiently process a death scene and gather all of the information needed. 

Participants who complete this Basic Course are eligible to attend the Masters Course held every other year. This is a case-based course which covers new techniques and high profile cases. These lectures provide training on what to do in unique situations and how new techniques can assist with obtaining evidence and/or identification.

These courses are training courses, not certification courses or degree courses. We offer continuing education certificates to those wanting to turn in the credits to their professional board. Please refer to the accreditation tab for a list of approved types of CE. We will also provide a certificate of attendance at the completion of the course that can be used for your employee portfolio.

Please note,  we are not affiliated with the American Board of Medicolegal Death Investigators. Saint Louis University staff will not answer question on their behalf. Please contact the ABMDI regarding requirements, exam, and fees.
