Overview

Since 1995, the University of Maryland School of Medicine, Baltimore VA Medical Center and Medical Alumni Association have produced an annual conference called "The Historical CPC".

A CPC, or Clinicopathologic Conference, is a medical clinical exercise in which the history of a patient's illness is presented to an experienced clinician for discussion in a didactic setting. This form of conference is used to teach our students and house staff how an experienced clinician would approach a difficult or challenging case.

We present an unusual, modern case on a weekly basis, but once a year we stray from our modern cases and discuss an historical figure.
