“This is an area that has not had a concise review performed in quite a while, so we felt this was a good overarching topic to present back to the ATS community for the Maintenance of Certification credit,” explained Pediatric Core Curriculum Chair Jane Gross, MD, PhD, a pediatric pulmonologist at National Jewish Health.

Featured presentations include:

  • Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia in the NICU, Divya Chhabra, MD, University of Rochester Medical Center
  • Post NICU Management of BPD, Manvi Bansal, MD, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles

“Session one was designed to focus on bronchopulmonary dysplasia. I think these presentations will be fascinating and help people understand from the pediatric pulmonary perspective what neonatologists are really asking for when it comes to consulting on these complex conditions for infants,” Dr. Gross said.

Throughout the three sessions of the Pediatric Core Curriculum, attendees will learn about the diagnosis and management of central and obstructive sleep disorders in infants, best practices for managing and treating pulmonary hypertension in infants, and standards of care for treating bronchopulmonary dysplasia in the neonatal ICU and post-NICU period.

The goal of the core curriculum series is to support clinicians engaged in the MOC activities by providing updates on subjects included in recertification requirements. The topics are aligned with corresponding MOC Medical Knowledge modules. This symposium is designed to help clinicians stay up to date with important information relevant to their medical practices and provide clinicians an opportunity to evaluate their knowledge and skills while earning MOC points.

This session is worth one CME credit and one MOC point. CME certificates of credit/attendance will be awarded based on the participant attending the activity, submitting a completed evaluation, and attesting to the credits earned. A CME certificate will be available upon successful completion of all three components. For MOC points, participants must attend the session(s) and complete the corresponding evaluation and post-test for the activity with a passing score.

Session two of the Pediatric Core Curriculum will be held on Tuesday, May 23, from noon–1 p.m. The third session is scheduled for Wednesday, May 24, from 11 a.m.–noon. All sessions will be in the West Salon G-I (Street Level) of the convention center.
