Course Information

2021 UCLA Pediatric Board Review Course

Live Virtual Learning

August 31, 2021 to September 03, 2021

The goal of the UCLA Pediatric Board Review 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, as well as pediatricians and family practitioners seeking an intensive refresher course in pediatrics.

This live virtual conference is designed to optimize our attendees’ performance on the American Board of Pediatrics General 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.

Video recordings of core content presented by the faculty of the 25th UCLA Pediatric Board Review will be made available to all registrants beginning July 31st. It will be expected that all registrants will have watched these recorded videos to prepare them for the live virtual and question/answer sessions taking place August 31st – September 3rd. In addition, optional small-group test-taking skills sessions will be available as part of the live virtual meeting session.
