Ambulatory Care Courses

These resources provide 24/7 access to the foundational, clinical information and just-in-time job aids appropriate for clinicians hired to pediatric ambulatory care settings, including outpatient surgery departments, and specialty clinics and programs. 

At this time, the patient scenarios presented within the courses are primarily inpatient focused. However, the core content presented is applicable to most pediatric audiences. 

Standardized, self-paced learning resources allow educators to focus on application to assist new hires in gaining required knowledge and skills more quickly, improving time to productivity. In addition, educators can add organization-specific information and policies to online topics, creating a personalized solution.
