Clinical Conundrums:

The Society of Hospital Medicine (SHM), the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), and the Academic Pediatric Association (APA) encourage the sharing of scientific research as part of the Pediatric Hospital Medicine 2017 (PHM 2017) conference. Whether you have submitted conundrums in the past, or have never submitted, we encourage everyone to submit their work to PHM 2017!

The Call for Clinical Conundrums for oral presentation and posters at the 2017 conference has closed.
