Advances in the

Practice of Pediatrics


March 24-26, 2017

We would like to welcome you to San Diego for our 31st Annual Advances in the Practice of Pediatrics Conference. This program is designed for pediatricians, family physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, and allied health professionals caring for children.

We are honored to have Dr. Nancy Guerra, Dean of the School of Social Ecology and Professor of Psychology and Social Behavior at University of California Irvine, and Dr. Adriana Vivolo from the Centers for Disease Control as Keynote Speakers on the topics of youth and violence, and cyberbullying. As always, our own nationally recognized faculty will cover subspecialty topics in Cardiology, Infectious Disease, Orthopedics, Otolaryngology, Allergy/Immunology, Gastroenterology, Hematology, and Sports Medicine. The conference addresses a number of important pediatric issues including the effects of global warming on pediatric health; emerging infections including Zika, Hepatitis, and West Nile viral infections; the consequences of sports-related brain injury in children; substance abuse and brain injury in adolescents; and texting and driving. The conference combines lectures with case-based learning and panel discussions.

Attending our course will provide the latest clinical updates in “hot” pediatric topics and evidence-based medicine. You will have the opportunity to learn about the future of pediatric medicine as well as the newest approaches for pediatric management and diagnosis, and to network and discuss cases directly with the faculty and peers.

NEW THIS YEAR is our HANDS ON SIMULATION EXPERIENCE on common medical equipment and medical emergencies in the pediatric medical office setting. Participants will have the opportunity to use and engage with the latest state-of-the-art equipment to review necessary skills for dealing with medical equipment and medical emergencies in the context of the medical office. Enrollment is limited and first come, first serve so please register for this optional add-on course quickly!
