54th Annual Pediatric Postgraduate Course
Nicklaus Children's Health System is proud to present the 54th Annual Pediatric Postgraduate Course. This event was held Thursday, February 28, 2019 through Sunday, March 3, 2019 at the Diplomat Beach Resort in sunny Hollywood, Florida.
Every year, for the past 55 years, 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 Health System’s 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 700 participants, including pediatricians, family practitioners, residents/fellows, and ancillary staff members are exposed to the world’s 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 Children's Health System, 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.
This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of physicians and other health care professionals who wish to learn more about new, pediatric state-of-the-art knowledge and topics relevant to the practice of pediatrics.
This course presents new, pediatric state-of-the-art knowledge on topics relevant to the practice of pediatrics.
