Medical Education
Continuing medical education includes the most up-to-date advances in pediatric health care presented through various symposia, lecture series, seminars and rounds. The affiliation between Washington University School of Medicine and St. Louis Children’s Hospital provides knowledge of the latest in research and clinical expertise. Many education programs offer credit hours in category 1 of the Physician’s Recognition Award of the AMA.
