The Aquifer team was excited to travel to Denver, Colorado for the COMSEP Annual Meeting. Our team connected with many of our subscribers and contributors at this year’s conference. Aquifer held a successful reception, Partners & Programs Session, and several one-on-one meetings. 

Reception

Celebrating Community: Sharing Tips & Honoring Contributors

Our subscribers and contributors joined us at the COMSEP Annual Meeting for a reception to celebrate this milestone year for Aquifer Pediatrics.

Wednesday, April 11th, 6:30-7:30 pm
Grand Hyatt Denver Conference Center, Mount Albert Room A (second floor)

There have been so many exciting changes since last year’s COMSEP meeting. Aquifer continues to optimize and improve our new learning management system, launched in July. Our new name, Aquifer Pediatrics, took effect this January. And we continue to evolve and improve our content and technology—with more upgrades coming soon.

Attendees enjoyed appetizers, drinks, and a short presentation by:

  • Michael Dell, MD
    Aquifer Pediatrics Senior Director; Vice Chair for Education, Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital; Professor of Pediatrics, Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine
  • Elizabeth Stuart, MD
    Aquifer Pediatrics Editor-in-Chief; Professor of Pediatrics, Stanford University School of Medicine
Sharing Tips & Honoring Contributors

Our board of medical educators shared tips and advice for optimizing the use of Aquifer cases—with tools like our free interdisciplinary courses, exams, and educator resources. Attendees learned ways to leverage the features of Aqueduct, our learning management system, to improve your workflow. Our team celebrated and showed our gratitude to the many COMSEP members who have contributed to building CLIPP (now Aquifer Pediatrics) into what it is today. We’re proud to celebrate the accomplishments of the organization that began with the creation of CLIPP 18 years ago.
