The University of Wisconsin Department of Pediatrics sponsors conferences and other live activities focused on cutting-edge topics in pediatric and adolescent medicine. We deliver these activities in learner-friendly, interactive formats.
Seminars in Pediatrics
Our flagship conference, Seminars in Pediatrics, is held in Madison in September each year. It provides up-to-date information on new trends and evidence-based developments in the prevention and treatment of childhood and adolescent diseases for physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and others across Wisconsin and surrounding states. Themes are based on needs identified by the American Board of Pediatrics, conference attendees, and experts in the field to address issues that have seen significant advances and will be most applicable to clinicians.
The Down Syndrome Medical Interest Group (DSMIG-USA) holds their conference in a different city each spring; the 2019 conference will be held in Pittsburg, PA and 2020 will be in New Orleans, LA. Participation fosters professional growth through dissemination of information about evidence-base practice and shared common experiences that inform best practices. Physicians, scientists, psychologists, nurses, genetic counselors, educators, therapists, clinic coordinators, and related health professionals who engage in clinical practice, research or health policy related to the care of individuals with Down syndrome should plan to attend.
