Our residents have the luxury of being able to attend (and present!) at some of the finest educational conferences in the medical school.
Medicine and Pediatric Didactics
The Department of Medicine holds didactics over the lunch hour each weekday. Medicine grand rounds are held on Thursdays. Additionally, each Monday a short 15-minute hematology-oncology case discussion occurs and a similar nephrology discussion occurs each Friday. Morning report occurs three days each week, Tuesday through Thursday, to discuss interesting patients that have been admitted to the general medicine inpatient service.
The Department of Medicine residency program provides specific information regarding the conference series here.
The Department of Pediatrics has adopted a half-day didactic forum that facilitates traditional lectures as well as longer periods of time that are required for pediatric case simulations and procedure clinics. Pediatric didactics occur each Thursday afternoon following the noon report. Additionally, the department hosts the pediatric problem or evidence-based conferences weekly on Tuesday. Grand rounds occur every Friday at noon. The pediatric morbidity and mortality conference occurs in place of problem conference one Tuesday each quarter.
Med-Peds Weekly Conference
The Med-Peds residents meet weekly for a dedicated Med-Peds conference covering board preparation, as well as, clinically relevant topics. Once a month, at this conference, we hold our monthly meeting, which covers a wide variety of topics including updates within the program along with an educational component such as practice management tips and ACGME updates.
Additional Educational Tidbits
During residency, you will routinely present at formal conferences such as pediatric problem conference, evidence-based medicine conference, and Med-Peds problem conference, in addition to informal conferences such as morning report. All residents will present at least one Grand Rounds during their residency and are also required to participate in at least one quality improvement project. Many of our residents, through participation with our program faculty, have had the opportunity to present their work at many local, state and national conferences!
