The Continuing Medical Education program at Children's of Alabama provides educational opportunities
for pediatric providers and specialists throughout the southeast.  Our goal is to offer practical and
dynamic CME courses on a variety of pediatric health care topics.  As the primary pediatric teaching
affiliate of the University of Alabama at Birmingham Medical School, we have more than 200 specialists
conducting research and clinical trials on the cutting edge of medicine.

 
Grand Rounds are held each Thursday at 12 noon in the Bradley Lecture Center, 4th Floor of the
Children's Center for Research & Innovation

 

CME credit for viewing a Grand Rounds presentation while it is in progress is available by following the
prompts on the Grand Rounds weekly webcast beginning at 11:50 a.m. on Thursdays.

 

Children's of Alabama is accredited by the Medical Association of the State of Alabama to provide
continuing medical education for physicians.

 

Each month will be updated with new schedule including title and learning objectives.
