The Division of E-Learning seeks to develop, maintain, and/or increase the knowledge, skills, and professional performance of primary care pediatricians, pediatric medical subspecialists, pediatric surgical specialists, and other pediatric health professionals by providing them with the highest quality, most relevant, and accessible online CME experiences. Our goal is to help participants effectively identify their personal educational needs and encourage them to design appropriate learning plans to meet those needs.
The Division of E-Learning supports AAP's mission via
