The University of Wisconsin Department of Pediatrics offers several online learning opportunities for physicians and other pediatric health care providers. They focus on timely topics related to pediatric care, and provide valuable education in a convenient, self-directed format that’s available anytime.
SUGARPREP is a suite of free educational products used to prepare medical providers to work in resource-limited settings. It consists of the SUGAR Trio, a comprehensive set of curricular resources for use by global health educators. The Trio is comprised of:
- SUGAR (Simulation Use for Global Away Rotations) Sim Cases: a simulation-based curriculum that focuses on common challenges, both practical and emotional, faced when working in resource-limited settings.
- PEARLS (Procedural Education for Adaptation to Resource-Limited Settings): a series of downloadable or streaming videos which demonstrate how to modify medical procedures using supplies commonly found in resource-limited settings.
- S-PACK (SUGAR’s Pre-Departure Activities Curricular Kit): a comprehensive pre-departure global health curriculum that is modular and modifiable.

Diabetes in School Health (DiSH)
DiSH® (Diabetes in School Health) ECHO is a monthly school diabetes health teleconferencing program for school nurses and school personnel who care for students with diabetes. Each ECHO session will have a 10-15 minute talk by a pediatric diabetes expert followed by 45-50 minutes of discussion of de-identified cases and questions to promote collaborative learning between school personnel in communities across the state.
