Overview

We very much hoped that the 2021 Current Clinical Pediatrics would see a return to in-person conferences.   Unfortunately, it appears that we will not be able to gather safely in person in April of 2021. Instead, we have chosen to offer the 2021 meeting as a virtual series, in a shorter format to combat zoom fatigue and to bridge the gap to our return to Hilton Head Island in Spring 2022.

We are delighted to announce that Howard Bauchner, MD, Editor in Chief, JAMA and the JAMA Network Senior Vice-President, American Medical Association and Course Director Emeritus for this program will be our keynote speaker.

This survey course is designed for the general pediatric and primary care clinician to improve their competence in a variety of specialist treatment strategies that they may encounter in their practice.  This year, learners will be able to outline some of the latest treatment recommendations in areas such as COVID-19, pediatric dentistry, and injury prevention among others.

Who should attend?
Pediatricians, family practitioners, general practitioners, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and residents.
