Recognizing and Responding to Children at Risk:
Suspected Child Abuse and Neglect Education
A program of the PA Chapter, American Academy of Pediatrics

The license renewal deadline – Oct. 31 for DOs and Dec. 31 for MDs – will be here before you know it!


Pa. physicians renewing their license must attest that they completed 2 credit hours in child abuse recognition and reporting in either 2019 or 2020.

PAMED knows that many of our members prefer live education – we’ve got you covered! In addition to our online CME course, we are now offering a live webinar designed to help our physician members meet the state’s requirement. Please note that these webinars are only open to physician members.

Offered on two dates to fit your busy schedule - each class size is limited to the first 75 registrants. 


After the course, attendees will be able to:

  • Identify the role of child protection

  • Describe the role of a mandated reporter

  • Define categories of child abuse in the law

  • Recognize potential risks/indicators of child abuse/neglect

  • Explain the referral and follow up processes

  • Identify prevention resources
