We are pleased to invite you to the 17th Annual Pediatric Board Review Symposium, August 29 – September 2, 2011, located at The Renaissance Cleveland Hotel in Cleveland, Ohio.

The primary objective of the symposium is to provide a comprehensive pediatric board review, which will prepare you for board certification or recertification. The quality and breadth of the symposium is also attractive for individuals needing a comprehensive review of basic pediatric clinical information.

There are several unique features that set this review above the others.  These include the use of an anonymous audience response system, which allows the attendee to gauge their knowledge base and become familiar with board-type questions while attending the symposium. This format also allows the lecturer to introduce topics in a question and answer format and to stress board examination-relevant information. In addition, there are general pediatric and specialty-specific board simulation sessions, during which board relevant questions/answers and rationale will be discussed.

Finally, all attendees registering for the full symposium will receive the new 3rd (2010) edition of the 583-page textbook, The Cleveland Clinic Intensive Review of Pediatrics. This textbook which is based on this symposium, is the first comprehensive textbook to specifically focus on pediatric board review certification and recertification.  Attendees registering for “day only� attendance have an option to purchase this book at a discounted price. 

After completing this activity, the participant will be able to do the following:

    * Acquire the core knowledge necessary to pass the pediatric board examination or recertification exam;
    * Devise a differential diagnosis for a specific patient presentation;
    * Interpret laboratory findings for a host of clinical presentations;
    * Construct a therapeutic plan for a specific patient presentation;
    * Identify areas of knowledge deficit or weakness.
