Course Description

This course is designed for clinicians and health professionals who provide service to infants, children, and adolescents. Subject matter will be presented to the entire group in didactic lectures, panel
discussions, and brief management problems; followed by question and answer periods. During some sessions, the course breaks into small seminars to explore areas of particular interest. The practice of general pediatrics requires a large knowledge base covering many areas of practice. Keeping up to date is a challenge. Using the yearly course evaluations, we determine the topic areas most needed by clinicians. These generally include disciplines that are not well-taught during training. We aim to present state-of-the-art information that pediatricians can incorporate into their daily practices.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Evaluate recent basic science and clinical advances in pediatrics.
  • Incorporate practice guidelines and published standards of care in the diagnosis and management of pediatric diseases, including but not limited to mental health, respiratory, neurological, and GI disease.
  • Assess traditional principles of care in light of recent scientific advances in pediatrics.
  • Recognize and discuss different approaches to pediatric patient care.
