About the Course

Our History

Every year, for the past 58 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 our 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, Faculty Development, Trauma, Tumor Board, Cardiology, and Radiology Conferences. 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.

Our Mission

To provide a state-of-the-art forum for continuing medical education encompassing the latest developments in Pediatrics and Pediatric Subspecialties, fostering best clinical practices, up-to-date research information, and child advocacy. This course reflects Nicklaus Children’s Health System’s commitment to advancing the educational development of worldwide medical professionals serving children.

Target Audience

This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of physicians and other healthcare professionals who wish to learn more about new, pediatric state-of-the-art knowledge and topics relevant to the practice of pediatrics.

Learning Objectives
