The American Pediatric Surgical Association has developed multiple ways to keep current on research, techniques and best practices in pediatric surgery and also to earn valuable pediatric surgery Continuing Medical Education credits.

The ExPERT (Exam-based Pediatric surgery Educational Reference Tool) continuing medical education program is an innovative platform designed to help practicing pediatric surgeons incorporate the available medical literature into the care of their patients. It provides integrated self-assessment and continuous certification CME credits.

From presentation to procedures to long-term outcomes, keep the current general surgical care of children at your fingertips. The Pediatric Surgery NaT is written for pediatric surgeons by pediatric surgeons and is designed for those both in practice and in training. It contains learning objectives, images, videos and links to MOC CME and the medical literature. Note: a subscription to ExPERT is required to take advantage of the MOC CME.

Attendees to the APSA Annual Meetings can earn CME credit or MOC credit by answering questions. Access the CME platform through this link and select the Annual Meeting CME channel. The 2021 annual meeting offers up to 9 hours of AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.

Through monthly literature reviews, many of APSA’s committees make recommendations on scientific literature which is of interest to the pediatric surgeon’s practice, but which may be outside of the usual literature sources that the pediatric surgeon surveys. ExPERT subscribers can earn continuing medical education credit for some of the articles.
