Pediatric Hospital Medicine Lecture Series
The Department of Pediatrics hosts twice-monthly sessions following section meetings which are designed for and by our hospitalists, covering a variety of topics including clinical reviews, research, quality, and education-oriented topics, plus other areas that we just want to learn about!
