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.
