Course description

Subject matter will be presented to the entire group in didactic lectures, panel discussions and brief management problems. These will be followed by question and answer periods. 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. We aim to present state-of-the-art information that pediatric providers can incorporate into their daily practices. 

There are two options for participating in this course. The first is a full in-person program. The second is a virtual option at lower cost which includes all the lecture presentations, but not all of the break-out sessions. 

This accredited course offered by Mass General Brigham can be attended livestream or in person. This course is targeted toPrimary Care Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, Specialty Physicians, Nurses , Family Medicine Practitioners and Pediatric Trainees interested in Primary Care.
