At the Forefront of Neonatal Education

Medical knowledge is always expanding, making it imperative that clinicians stay up to date on the latest research and practices. As part of our commitment to ongoing learning, the Pediatrix®Center for Research, Education, Quality and Safety (CREQS) works to enhance the quality and availability of continuing education through a combination of live conferences and online learning. Through our online portal, clinicians can search, filter and browse the complete array of CREQS-hosted opportunities to find the courses that best meet their needs and interests.

A cornerstone of our educational efforts is the Pediatrix Neonatology Grand Rounds series, which addresses pertinent controversial issues that influence the clinical practice of newborn medicine. Webinars are held on the first Wednesday of every month from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern Time. These free continuing education courses are open to all clinicians, not just our affiliated clinicians, and are designated for continuing medical (CME) credits and continuing nursing education (CNE) contact hours. As many as 900 clinicians join monthly for the live webinar.

Established in 2020, the NEO Grand Rounds series features experts in the field, and sessions include the opportunity for live Q&A with the presenter. However, should clinicians not be available to join the live session due to clinical demands, an on-demand recording is available on our continuing education portal, CloudCME.

Recent topics have included the latest innovations in fetal surgery, antibiotic stewardship during pregnancy and seizure management in the NICU.

Our next NEO Grand Rounds webinar, “Articles That Should Change NICU Care 2023,”will take place Wednesday, June 7, at 4 p.m. ET. You can find past webinars as well as registration for upcoming webinars on our Neonatology Grand Rounds website.

CREQS also hosts a number of live events, including NEO: The Neonatology Conference. Join us Feb. 21-23 in Las Vegas, Nevada, as some of the most renowned experts in neonatology share the latest developments and most pressing topics in neonatal medicine. The conference is intended for all neonatal-perinatal medicine clinicians, including neonatologists and advanced practitioners. In 2024, we are pleased to once again host the Specialty Review in Neonatology in conjunction with the NEO Conference. This course is invaluable to those preparing for certifying examinations, as well as new or current fellows in training seeking an outstanding fundamental pathophysiology course in neonatal-perinatal medicine.

We hope you will join us for one or all of these fantastic educational events.
