Series Overview

Target Audience

UW Department of Pediatrics faculty including general pediatricians, sub specialists and family practice physicians. Madison-based general pediatricians, sub specialists and family practice physicians. Madison-based primary care providers including physician extenders and other allied health professionals involved in the care of children and adolescents. Pediatricians and other primary care providers who are able to acces live web casts of the activity.

Elements of Competence

In addition to knowledge, this activity has been designed to change learner competence and focuses on the American Board of Medical Specialties areas of practice-based learning and improvement medical knowledge.

Practice Gaps

Clinicians who care for pediatric patients need to be aware of new and/or developing technology and guidelines for practice in key areas of pediatric medicine as identified by the American Board of Pediatrics and department faculty. Many are focused on clinical care or subspecialty areas, so there is not much time to address knowledge gaps on the breadth of pediatric medicine required by the American Board of Pediatrics.
