Continuing Medical Education, MOC and Professional Conferences

The Continuing Medical Education (CME) Program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education. Nationwide Children's offers over 1000 Category 1 CME sessions annually, ranging from weekly activities to research and clinical symposia. Internet-based videos and other electronic educational materials are available as well.
