  • 41st Annual Primary Care Pediatrics Conference

    Wednesday, December 4, 2019

    Subject matter will be presented to the entire group in didactic lecture, 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 pediatricians. 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.
