Continuing Medical Education
The Department of Pediatrics’ Continuing Medical Education (CME) program is based at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO). We offer pediatric educational events for primary health care providers such as pediatricians, family physicians, nurse practitioners and nurses interested in improving the care of children and youth. These events are designed to help maintain and develop health care provider knowledge essential to providing optimal health care for pediatric patients.
A range of professional development activities focused on pediatric health care are offered. These activities provide:
- Educational programs that highlight current and best evidence for the optimal care of children and youth
- Opportunities through courses to learn, improve or review technical and procedural skills as well as performance standards
- Maintenance of certification credits through accreditation with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and the Canadian College of Family Physicians
