Continuing Medical Education


Continuing Medical Education Program

St. Christopher’s has been dedicated to physician education and training for more than 
110 years, including the development of continuing medical education for nearly 65 years!  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”.
