Pediatric Postgraduate Course (PPGC) - 46th Annual Pediatric Medicine Course

Nicklaus Children's Hospital (formerly Miami Children's Hospital) has presented an annual Pediatric Postgraduate Course (PPGC) -- a course that is regarded as the most established continuing, independent medical education program in the country. This course stems from Nicklaus Children's Hospitals tradition of quality and excellence in health care for children and is academically tailored to advance the clinical and research aspects of pediatrics and adolescent medicine. Renowned faculty from all over the United States and the world are invited to participate and present the most recent advances to the practicing pediatrician that directly impacts the practice. It is here that approximately 750 participants, including pediatricians, family practitioners, residents/fellows, and ancillary staff members are exposed to the worlds foremost teachers who have proven ability to translate theoretical information to the practical level of day-to-day pediatric care. This course, Perspectives in Pediatrics, serves as the centerpiece for the Continuing Medical Education Program at Nicklaus Childrens Hospital, which includes weekly Grand Rounds, and Radiology Conference. The PPGC provides education in all areas of pediatrics including topics such as Metabolic Diseases, Cardiology, Endocrinology, Nutrition, Gastroenterology, Nephrology, Infectious Diseases, Emergency and Critical Care Medicine through its General Sessions and Symposiums/Workshops. Additionally, a Pediatric Board Review Course is offered that provides an opportunity to refresh pediatric knowledge to approximately 180 physicians preparing to sit for their pediatric boards.
