Continuing Medical Education

The Office of Medical Education within the Department of Pediatrics has developed a broad and comprehensive series of educational activities that serve the continuing medical educational needs of our faculty, community practitioners and colleagues throughout the country. Our continuing medical education endeavors are encompassed by three primary activities: Grand Rounds, Outreach Conferences, Continuing Medical Education Conferences.

The Department takes great pride in its Grand Round series which runs annually from September through June. Pediatric Grand Rounds is the premier teaching and educational activity of the Department and addresses key concepts within the realm of state of the art pediatrics including those related to novel and important developments in research, clinical diagnosis and management, child advocacy, international pediatrics and community pediatrics. The series draws on the expertise of the Department's full-time faculty, our talented community physicians and leaders and from national and international leaders in the field.

Yale School of Medicine (YSM) will now pay the tuition for teachers on the voluntary faculty to attend two Yale-Sponsored CME courses at YSM and ten hours of on-line YSM CME education per year. In addition, all CME related sessions sponsored by the Teaching and Learning Center (TLC) are free and open to you.

Eligibility: All voluntary faculty holding a YSM appointment who are actively involved in medical student teaching.

The Annual Yale Pediatric Update was started 12 years ago, in direct response to requests from pediatric practitioners throughout the region seeking high quality CME focused on evidence-based clinical practice and advances in the field of pediatrics. This year's course has been designed to meet the educational needs of pediatric practitioners by providing current recommendations for diagnosis and treatment of a variety of common, and often challenging, pediatric health conditions. Topics include dermatology, precocious puberty, ADHD medications, management of febrile infants, vaccine refusal, concussion care, reading and writing difficulties, child abuse and a rousing round of Pediatric Jeopardy.
