Continuing Education Offerings
As the region's largest and only freestanding licensed children's hospital, Covenant Children's views pediatric education as an integral part of our mission.
We hold two major conferences each year, one for pediatrics and one for child abuse.
In partnership with Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, we host an annual pediatrics conference with topics around general pediatrics as well as pediatric specialties.
