Education Mission Statement
The ACOP’s Continuing Medical Education (CME) is designed to meet the objectives and purposes of the College and the needs of the membership. The objective of the ACOP is “to foster measures and conduct activities to increase the effectiveness of the specialty of pediatrics and pediatric education at all levels.” The ACOP Committee on CME has as its main function the implementation of programs that will improve the quality of health care for children. Through surveys of its members during the year and at the CME Meeting, educational needs are identified. The scope of pediatric topics presented in the CME programs is based on these surveys.

In an effort to provide conference attendees with opportunities to learn in a small group setting, concurrent sessions are being held on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. Registration for these sessions is considered on a first come, first served basis. Please register early to make sure you can have your first choice(s).
