Posted by Jessica Carmichael on 10/10/14 4:15 PM

Dr. Eduardo Sanchez Velasco, a renowned Mexican pediatrician recognized by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), recently organized the first rollout of APLS: Medicina de emergencias pediátricas, quinta edicion to 21 training instructors and course directors in Mexico, in accordance with the Sociedad Mexicana de Pediatría (SMPs). The event was supported by the Mexican Council of Pediatric Certification, with two points in the specialty recertification (Mexican pediatricians should cover 20 points per year). The training sessions took place over three days with the President and Vice President of the SMP and Drs. Manuel Correa Flores and Jose Luis Pinacho in attendance.

As a result of the APLS rollout, there are now currently 42 APLS Course Directors in Mexico. Future APLS rollouts are being planned for Panama and Colombia.
