Distance learning

The Telemedicine Program at Children's offers distance learning opportunities using our advanced technology and specialized medical video capabilities. Presentations are offered the second Tuesday of every month from 12:30 to 1:30 pm.

Children’s is accredited by the Medical Association of Georgia to provide continuing medical education for physicians and is an approved provider of continuing nursing education by the Alabama State Nurses Association, an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.

Children’s resolves to ensure that its educational mission, and particularly, its continuing medical education activities are not influenced by the special interests of any corporation or individual associated with its program. While having a financial interest or professional affiliation with a corporation does not necessarily influence a speaker’s presentation, the standards of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education require that this relationship be disclosed to the audience. Any potential conflict of interest will be made known to participants at the beginning of the session.

Project ECHO®

Project ECHO facilitates virtual clinics, linking specialists with primary care clinicians in local communities through videoconferencing. Primary care clinicians become part of a learning community where they receive mentoring and feedback from specialists as they manage complex patient cases.

By participating in Project ECHO, you will have access to:

  • Increased efficiency: Connect to a professional and referral network that will help you keep patients in your community for treatment whenever possible.
  • Professional development: Acquire new skills and competencies as you become part of a community of learners, increasing professional satisfaction and decreasing feelings of professional isolation.
  • Continued learning: Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta is accredited by the Medical Association of Georgia to provide continuing medical education for physicians. Children’s designates this live activity for a maximum of 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditTM. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. Registration is free.
