    OPENPediatrics, an innovative web-based educational platform, is planning to launch new content and curricula in 2014.

    The application will continue to focus on critical care pediatric medicine, but will branch out this year to include new topics and specialties, and to incorporate more educational material from international experts.

    OPENPediatrics is using this web-based material to augment traditional medical education, by allowing clinicians to access relevant information for their training electronically and on their own time. The staff of OPENPediatrics recently learned of a physician in Israel who used knowledge gained from these training videos to help save a child’s life.
