CME Program


The Office for CME provides continued service for the faculty at St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children, nurse practitioners, fellows, residents and medical students. Also, we assist in directing and planning activities that occur off-campus at community-based physicians and institutions with which we work closely. 

Our CME programs have been shaped over the years by the wonderful influences of several historically renowned pediatricians who provided care and education at St. Chris, including: Dr. William H. Bennett, founder of St. Christopher’s Hospital, Dr. Waldo E. Nelson, author of what is widely-known as THE pediatric textbook, Dr. Angelo M. DiGeorge, physician-scientist who detailed DiGeorge Syndrome, and Dr. David S. Smith, venerable physician leader fondly known as the “pediatrician’s pediatrician.”

As of February 1, 2020, St. Christopher's CME Office is utilizing Tower Health’s CME tracking system/database – eeds. This system will be used for all SCHC Grand Rounds and CME Case Conferences you attend on campus as well as any other Tower Health CME activities you participate in.  Please sign in with the eeds app on your phone or on a laptop, desktop or mobile device.
