The Office for CME at St.Christopher's Hospital for Children provides continued service, as well as directing and planning activities that occur off-campus at community-based physicians and institutions with which we work closely.
St. Christopher’s has been dedicated to physician education and training for more than 110 years, including the development of continuing medical education for nearly 65 years!
Our CME programs have been shaped over the years by the wonderful influences of several historically renowned pediatricians who provided care and education at St. Chris, including: Dr. William H. Bennett, founder of St. Christopher’s Hospital, Dr. Waldo E. Nelson, author of what is widely-known as THE pediatric textbook, Dr. Angelo M. DiGeorge, physician-scientist who detailed DiGeorge Syndrome, and Dr. David S. Smith, venerable physician leader fondly known as the “pediatrician’s pediatrician.”
As of February 1, 2020, St. Christopher's CME Office is utilizing Tower Health’s CME tracking system/database – eeds. This system will be used for all SCHC Grand Rounds and CME Case Conferences you attend on campus as well as any other Tower Health CME activities you participate in. Please sign in with the eeds app on your phone or on a laptop, desktop or mobile device.
