Core on Wednesday Afternoon

Every Wednesday afternoon from 1-4 pm the family medicine residents have protected didactic time, called "Core". The afternoons feature family medicine faculty and invited guest lectures, interactive workshops, journal review, geriatric medicine, practice management, and patient-centered medical home topics.  Every other month the residents have dedicated time for research. Residents also go to a local high school to do sports physicals in the summer, fall and spring during this time. The residents complete their Self-Assessment Modules (SAMs) required by the American Board of Family Medicine as a group on 2 Wednesday afternoons a year.  The chief residents are integrally involved in the curriculum and the selection of the topics and presenters. A 70% attendance of Core is required.
