Every year, for the past 53 years, Nicklaus Children's Hospital, formerly Miami Children's Hospital, has presented an annual Pediatric Postgraduate Course (PPGC) -- a course that is regarded as the most established continuing, independent medical education program in the country.

This course stems from Miami Children's Health System’s tradition of quality and excellence in health care for children and is academically tailored to advance the clinical and research aspects of pediatrics and adolescent medicine. Renowned faculty from all over the United States and the world are invited to participate and present the most recent advances to the practicing pediatrician that directly impacts the practice. It is here that approximately 700 participants, including pediatricians, family practitioners, residents/fellows, and ancillary staff members are exposed to the world’s foremost teachers who have proven ability to translate theoretical information to the practical level of day-to-day pediatric care.

This course, “Perspectives in Pediatrics”, serves as the centerpiece for the Continuing Medical Education Program at Miami Children's Health System, which includes weekly Grand Rounds, and Radiology Conference. The PPGC provides education in all areas of pediatrics including topics such as Metabolic Diseases, Cardiology, Endocrinology, Nutrition, Gastroenterology, Nephrology, Infectious Diseases, Emergency and Critical Care Medicine through its General Sessions and Symposiums/Workshops.

Mission Statement

About the InterContinental Hotel

JW Marriott Marquis MiamiOne of the Most Distinguished Names Among Miami Luxury Hotels…

Built in 1982, the InterContinental® Miami soars majestically into the skyline on Chopin Plaza and adjacent to Bayfront Park, located at the confluence of Biscayne Bay and Miami River. A Miami luxury hotel, it was the first in the area to cater to the discerning business elite when it was designed and built by famed architect Pietro Belluschi. Boasting the only lobby in the world built around a work of art, the hotel’s 18-foot, 70-ton Spindle sculpture made of travertine marble by sculptor Henry Moore is the breathtaking focal point of a grand lobby constructed in Italian marble slabs and precious African wood. The hotel was originally designed to be a casino but never operated as such. Instead, it has earned a reputation as Florida’s premier luxury hotel, now an iconic part of Miami history after more than 25 years under the exclusive InterContinental® brand.

Soaring 34 stories above gleaming Biscayne Bay, InterContinental® Miami bayfront hotel provides luxury accommodations with panoramic views of this vibrant city. Adjacent to the waterfront and downtown attractions, you can shop at nearby fashion boutiques, sample innovative cuisine at one of the city’s ritzy restaurants or just bask in the warm tropical sun and cool bay breezes. Make your reservation now at Miami Children's Health System’s discounted rate and discover all that Miami has to offer from our bayfront hotel, ideally situated in a convenient setting:

Minutes from South Beach, Miami Design District, the Port of Miami, American Airlines Arena, Adrienne Arscht Center, Bayside Marketplace, Bayfront Park, Coconut Grove and Coral Gables
