Pediatric Pulmonary Medicine Virtual Board Review

Register via mail or fax

August 14-17, 2020

Up to 53.25 CME credits and MOC points available


This virtual course will review the information you should know for the ABP Pediatric Pulmonary Medicine Certification exam. Course content mirrors the ABP exam content outline for pediatric pulmonary medicine. Whether you need to certify, recertify, or simply review, this virtual course offers a thorough review you can put to the test.

Access

Access to the pre-recorded lectures will start at the beginning of August. You will receive an email that will give instructions on how to access the recordings as well as other information regarding the course. This email should be coming out towards the end of July.

Pre-Event Education:

Up to 37.00 CME credits and MOC points available

Prior to the live virtual event, attendees will gain access to 37 recorded lectures for the program. These 60-minute lectures cover course material specific to each discipline and prepare attendees for the live virtual sessions.

Live Virtual Sessions (August 14–17)

Up to 16.25 CME credits and MOC points available

Each of the individual lectures has a corresponding 25-minute live virtual session hosted by the specific faculty member. During these sessions attendees engage in case-based interactive learning, including use of an audience response system. This will allow faculty to monitor the level of knowledge held by the attendees and teach to both correct and incorrect responses. Attendees will also have the opportunity to ask live questions to the faculty and engage in threaded discussions on a peer-to-peer level.
