Program Description: 

This lecture series is weekly one hour sessions designed to further the knowledge of the participants in new areas of pediatric clinical practice; expand the knowledge of pediatric practitioners in the areas of patient care and research, and keep faculty up to date on cutting edge changes developing in the clinical care of children in subspecialty areas.
