Pediatric Evening Lecture Series

Through the Pediatric Evening Lecture Series, Connecticut Children’s Department of Continuing Medical Education offers educational programs dealing with a wide spectrum of medical topics of interest to the medical community.

Needs Assessment

Topic selection is based on needs identified through hospital admission and referral patterns, clinical guidelines developed by specialty organizations, licensing and certification criteria, input from Connecticut Children’s sub-specialists, and feedback from the practicing community.

The Office of Continuing Medical Education plans evidence-based, CME activities that enhance physician competence and performance, improve patient outcomes, and better equip physicians and other health care providers to practice in a changing healthcare environment.

The Pediatric Evening Lecture Series strives to present a practical and evidence-based approach to common pediatric topics that impact primary care practitioners.
