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.
