Educational Conferences

It is our mission to create and provide an atmosphere that will stimulate scholarly enhancement for our students, residents, faculty and community physicians.  Up to date and latest advances in pediatric medicine are offered as part of Pediatric Grand Rounds.  Evidence Based Medicine is a component of our Pediatric Journal Club.  In addition, in-depth analysis of cases and outcomes is part of the Morbidity and Mortality Conference (M and M).  Through Pediatric Radiology Conferences, we aim to keep you up to date on what to order and how to interpret results.  Please feel free to participate in our conferences.  Below is our recurring schedule, and where the conferences are.  They are open to all UT students/residents/faculty and any community health care provider.
