CME & Conferences

Continuing Medical Education (CME) plays an important role in the Weill Cornell Medicine Department of Pediatrics. Our physicians, surgeons, nurses, social workers and other healthcare professionals must keep abreast of the latest developments in their respective fields. Our department is also committed to patient education, and offers conferences for families. 

Due to the COVID pandemic, many of our annual CME conferences are on hiatus.  Please check back as circumstances change.
