Continuing Medical Education
Children's National Health System's Office of Continuing Medical Education assists the institution in carrying out its mission by supporting and assisting faculty to develop and produce formal continuing medical education activities. These activities provide physicians and other pediatric health care professionals with the knowledge and skills necessary to enhance their practice of medicine and improve health care outcomes through a continuing learning process.
Children's National Health System Office of Continuing Medical Education sponsors a variety of Conferences and Grand Rounds. Many conferences focus on specific pediatric topics that are of interest to pediatricians, family practitioners, specialists, and other health professionals.
We offer continuing education programs for nurses throughout the year. These on-site, off-site and online programs enhance professional development in nursing practice, education, administration, and research, all of which positively impact patient care outcomes and patient safety.
At Children’s, the Department of Nursing supports the career aspirations of all of our nurses and encourages nurses to periodically assess career goals. Children’s believes that professional development is an important component of providing excellent patient care outcomes.
