Pediatric review

Pediatric Review is Children’s Hospital’s peer-written continuing medical education publication. The journal is distributed to all Children’s Hospital medical staff, general pediatricians and family practitioners in Louisiana and the Gulf Coast. Children’s Hospital designates this enduring material education activity for a maximum of 1 hour of CME credit for physicians.

Articles can be written by any physician on our Medical Staff, PhDs at Children’s Hospital and resident physicians as long as a Medical Staff member is included in the byline. For article submission guidelines, please contact Catherine Mooney, CME Coordinator.

CME applications

If you are a physician that would like to propose a CME activity for consideration, please submit an application telling us about your topic for review. Proposed CME activities should increase medical knowledge, provide patient care, enhance professionalism, facility quality improvement, coordinate work in interdisciplinary teams, employ evidence-based practices and/or provide evidence of evaluation of performance in practice.
