Course Description

The goal of this course is to provide a broad, but in-depth review of pediatrics for those preparing for the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) certification examination, those undergoing ABP re-certification, and pediatricians and family practitioners seeking an intensive refresher course in pediatrics.

The program is designed to maximize performance on the American Board of Pediatrics examination. The focus of the Board examination, historically, has been on diagnosis. Two key elements to making a successful diagnosis are pattern recognition and knowledge of links and associations. An appreciation of these elements is essential for maximal performance on the Board examination, and they are emphasized in this program.

Pattern recognition involves fitting a set of symptoms, physical signs, and/or laboratory values to the pattern of a particular disease. For example, cough of ten days' duration, of increasing intensity and occurring in paroxysms, accompanied by coryza, with little or no fever, in a 7-week-old, fits the pattern of pertussis.

Links and associations represent key features of diseases that are necessary to suspect or make the diagnosis. In the example above, one might recognize the diagnosis, yet success in answering the question could depend on recall of the link that, with pertussis, the white blood count is typically elevated, with a predominance of lymphocytes. Other links include:

  • links of physical findings and diseases (e.g., aniridia/Wilms)
  • links of geography and disease (e.g., Midwest and histoplasmosis)
  • links of diseases and treatments (e.g., legionella and erythromycin)
Each lecture in the course includes descriptions of the patterns of illness for the most important and the most common pediatric problems, and key links and associations are highlighted. A daily photo quiz will permit attendees to test their diagnostic skills with X-rays, EKG's, dermatologic conditions, and genetic syndromes, among others.

Disclosures

The FDA has issued a concept paper which classifies commercial support of scientific and educational programs as promotional unless it can be affirmed that the program is "truly independent" and free of commercial influence. In addition to independence, the FDA requires that nonpromotional, commercially supported education be objective, balanced, and scientifically rigorous. The policy further states that all potential conflicts of interest of the CME staff and faculty be fully disclosed to the program's participants. In addition, Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education policy now mandates that the provider adequately manages all identified potential conflicts of interest prior to the program. We at UCLA fully endorse the letter and spirit of these concepts.
