The 11th Annual Neonatal and Pediatric ECMO Educational Conference at UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh is a conference dedicated to providing educational opportunities for clinicians who care for children requiring ECMO. The two-day event includes lectures from experts, case presentations, panel discussions, and a one-of-a-kind hands-on ECMO simulation session. The conference will provide clinicians of all levels an opportunity to enhance their knowledge of managing pediatric patients requiring ECMO. Like many of our colleagues, concerns surrounding COVID-19 have led us to change this year's conference to a virtual format. We still plan on providing our attendees with the outstanding content they have come to expect from the UPMC Children’s Hospital ECMO Program, including LIVE INTERACTIVE SIMULATION activities. We hope you will join us!
