Pediatric Annual Acute Care Conference

The field of Pediatrics is fluid with new discoveries and advances in patient care. Generalists must be knowledgeable in all areas of preventive care as well as be able to competently care for children with more complex medical problems. It is essential that these healthcare professionals remain current in all areas of pediatric medicine and we will address a range of topics in this year's course from general outpatient medicine to emergencies that generalists may encounter to chronic illness. This CME course will provide participants with the basic science knowledge and bedside practical skills to manage many everyday clinical challenges. The Annual Update in Pediatrics will be held in the Community Center at St. Mary Medical Center on Saturday, August 12th. There is not a virtual option for this event.


This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint provider ship of Ochsner Clinic Foundation and Ochsner LSU Health Shreveport.
