The Pediatric Emergency Care Safety Initiative (PECSI) is a FREE educational program, part of the University of Florida College of Medicine/Jacksonville’s Department of Emergency Medicine.Here you'll find eight courses to assist healthcare professionals such as physicians, nurses, physician assistants, EMTs, and paramedics to enhance skills in the recognition and management of high acuity, high-risk pediatric patients in an emergent situation.

CEUs and CMEs are available for the PECSI lessons, where each one is a self-guided educational experience of text, videos, images, and graphs to assist the adult learner in continuing education. Each course is a stand-alone educational program, but also connects to the others. At the completion of each course and an 80% passing score on the post test, participants will receive CME or CEU credit applicable for that course.

Contact information in regard to CMEs and CEUs are provided on the introduction page of each module.  Please confirm with your respective college or accreditation body whether credits are transferable
