CME Pediatric Partnership Courses

What is a CME Pediatric Partnership Course?

Designed for pediatricians, family physicians, internists, and other ancillary health providers who care for children, CME Pediatric Partnership courses feature expert faculty presenting topics that highlight current medical issues. The Partnership was formed with the goal of providing top-quality education close to your office, and there is no charge for the CME credit provided.

Learning needs are identified by physicians groups and a course is designed around chosen concepts with the aim of improving medical practice. Each course combines an interactive lecture and question-and-answer period to allow you the opportunity to interact directly with faculty in solving the problems you encounter in daily practice. CME Pediatric Partnership courses are jointly sponsored by Primary Children’s Hospital, the University of Utah Department of Pediatrics, Intermountain Pediatric Clinical Programs, and the Utah Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
