DUBLIN -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "UCLA Children's Hospital Pediatric Board Review Course" report to their offering.

This course:

* Provides the most comprehensive review of subspecialty and general pediatrics available, with more than 41 hours of video

* Emphasizes pattern recognition, links, and associations as being key elements in diagnosis

UCLA Children's Hospital Pediatric Board Review Course is an expert review of sub-specialty and general pediatrics. The goal is to provide a broad, but in-depth review of pediatrics for those preparing for the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) certification examination, those undergoing ABP re-certification, and pediatricians and family practitioners seeking an intensive refresher course in pediatrics.

The program is designed to maximize performance on the American Board of Pediatrics examination. The focus of the Board examination, historically, has been on diagnosis. Two key elements to making a successful diagnosis are pattern recognition and knowledge of links and associations. An appreciation of these elements is essential for maximal performance on the Board examination, and they are emphasized in this program.

Each lecture includes descriptions of the patterns of illness for the most important and the most common pediatric problems, and key links and associations are highlighted.
