Faculty

J. Thomas Cross, Jr., MD, MPH, FAAP, FACP

Colorado Springs, CO

Dr. Tommy Cross is a former Med-Peds residency director (8 years) and a former Director of Education for MedStudy Corporation, a medical education company. In his 10 years at MedStudy, Dr. Cross spearheaded the development of the Pediatrics division while also managing major components of the Internal Medicine division. In this role he developed, wrote, reviewed and edited education content for both IM and Peds core curricula, Q&A self-testing products, and flash cards targeted to niche learning. He also directed and served as presenter in multi-day live courses each year (with schedules varying from 3½ to 9 days). These included courses focused exclusively on Board recertification, for which he and Candace Walkley, MD (now his colleague at A-Cross Medicine Reviews) were the original developers. Drs. Cross and Walkley were the sole presenters at these courses, which covered 12 subspecialty areas. Attesting to their popularity, the courses often sold out far ahead of start dates. Dr. Cross is a graduate of Tulane Medical School and has previously served as associate professor in the Department of Internal Medicine and Pediatrics at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center. He is a past president of the AAP's Section on Med-Peds, a past president of the National Internal Medicine-Pediatrics Program Directors’ Association, and a former member of the Clinical Efficacy Subcommittee of the ACP, which writes and directs the formulation of ACP guidelines for Internists. Dr. Cross is licensed to practice medicine in Louisiana and Colorado and is board certified by the American Board of Medical Specialties in Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Adult Infectious Diseases, and Pediatric Infectious Diseases. Clinically, Dr. Cross currently sees patients via telemedicine.

She completed a 4-year combined IM/Pediatrics residency training program, followed by a 2-year fellowship in adult Infectious Diseases (ID), at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center (LSUHSC). Dr. Walkley was then appointed Assistant Professor of IM and ID at LSUHSC, where she served as the IM Junior and Senior Clerkship Director, ID Fellowship Curriculum Coordinator, and ACGME Subspecialty Education Coordinator, as well as maintained an active clinical practice in ID and IM. Later, Dr. Walkley served as Associate Director of Education for the MedStudy Corporation, where she created evolving study materials for residents and practitioners of IM/Pediatrics, with specific emphasis on review for success on national board exams. Dr. Walkley also has worked clinically as a primary care internist at the VA’s large community-based outpatient clinic in Colorado Springs, and then as an IM/Peds physician in private practice in Huntsville, Texas. Dr. Walkley maintains certification by the American Board of Internal Medicine and the American Board of Pediatrics.

CME/ MOC Credit Information for Board Review Course

Tulane University Health Sciences Center and A-Cross Medicine Reviews present this activity for educational purposes only and do not endorse any product, content of presentation or exhibit. Participants are expected to utilize their own expertise and judgment while engaged in the practice of medicine. The content of the presentations is provided solely by presenters who have been selected because of their recognized expertise.

Overview
This program is designed to increase attendee knowledge and competence in a variety of internal medicine topics. These include hypertension, lipid management, common ENT problems, ethical dilemmas, current diabetes management, plus a multitude of others. All topics presented will utilize evidence-based guidelines from the literature.

Statement of Need
Common internal medicine issues are being updated continually by specialty and government agencies. It is difficult for the internal medicine physician to stay abreast of all the current new guidelines and recommendations. Physicians and other medical providers are in need of streamlined approaches to common primary care issues. Internal medicine physicians in particular must prepare for their initial certification or participate in continuing maintenance of certification. This course is presented to meet this particular need. 

Goal
The overall goals of the conference are to impact the diagnostic and treatment of patients seen in internal medicine practices and prepare the participant to be successful on an initial or MOC certification examination.
