Teaching Conferences

Nicklaus Children's Hospital offers weekly Grand Rounds presentations, multidisciplinary radiology conference, professorial rounds, evidence-based journal club sessions, and daily morning report presentations, nighttime curriculum, and noon conferences.

In addition, Nicklaus Children's Hospital sponsors numerous Continuing Medical Education (CME) programs throughout the year, including the Annual Pediatric Postgraduate Course, which is regarded as one of the most established independent CME programs in the country. The course aims to provide a state-of-the-art continuing medical education forum of general pediatrics and pediatric subspecialties to advance best clinical practices, latest research developments, and child advocacy.

Nicklaus Children's Hospital also hosts an Annual Board Review Course. This program is designed as a comprehensive review for pediatricians who are preparing for the American Board of Pediatrics certification or recertification examination. Third year residents are required to attend this four day course free of charge in addition to regularly scheduled board review sessions. This approach is one of the factors contributing to the high scores received by Nicklaus Children's Hospital residents on the American Board of Pediatrics Intraining Examinations and high passing rates on the Board Certification Exams.
