Continuing Medical Education

The Office of 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. Yale Pediatric Grand Rounds builds and updates our community of health care professionals on the leading edge of biomedical science, clinical and educational practices, presenting this information in an understandable and clinically useful format that informs the health care delivery and improves outcomes of children and adolescents. The series draws on the expertise of the Department's full-time faculty, our talented community physicians and leaders from national and international leaders in the field.
