August 31 – September 4, 2009 Featuring:
InterContinental Hotel & Bank of America Conference Center • Board Simulation Sessions
Cleveland, Ohio • Interactive Audience Response System
• Case-Driven Format
We are pleased to invite you to the 15th Annual Pediatric Board Review Symposium August 31 –
September 4, 2009, at The InterContinental Hotel and Bank of America Conference Center in
The primary objective of the symposium is to provide a comprehensive pediatric board review, which will
prepare you for board certification or re-certification. The quality and breadth of the symposium is also
attractive for individuals needing a comprehensive update of basic pediatric clinical information.
Unique features of the symposium include the use of an audience response system, which allows the
attendee to gauge their knowledge base and become familiar with board-type questions while attending the
symposium. This format also allows the lecturer to introduce topics in a question-and-answer format and
to stress board examination-relevant information. In addition, there are specialty-specific board simulation
sessions, during which board-relevant questions/answers and rationale will be discussed. Finally, all
attendees will receive, as part of their syllabus material, the new 3rd edition of the 594-page textbook, The
Cleveland Clinic Intensive Review of Pediatrics. This textbook is based on this symposium, and it is the first
comprehensive textbook to specifically focus on pediatric board review certification and re-certification.
Symposium We hope that you will join us for what promises to be a memorable educational event.
