Continuing Professional Education

Continuing medical education (CME) is an essential component in Children's Hospital of Philadelphia’s continuum of undergraduate, graduate and continuing professional education. Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, through its CME Department, offers many opportunities for healthcare professionals to continue their professional development education and training.

Children's Hospital of Philadelphia is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing education for physicians.

Our education, designed for national and international physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses and allied health professionals caring for children, features prominent faculty presenting a variety of topics in pediatric medicine, pediatric surgery and fetal surgery, pediatric anesthesiology/critical care medicine, pathology and laboratory medicine, pediatric radiology, and child and adolescent psychiatry/behavioral health.

Our activities include live courses, regularly scheduled series, and online educational materials. Courses are planned to promote the dissemination of recent clinical and scientific advancements, clinical quality improvement (CQI), patient safety, medical leadership and the six core competencies: Patient care; medical knowledge; practice-based learning and improvement; interpersonal skills and communication; professionalism; and systems-based practice, with the ultimate goal of helping physicians and other healthcare professionals practice high-quality patient care that results in better outcomes.
