Didactics and Conferences

While much of residency education is in the clinical environment, we strive to provide a well-rounded curriculum to better prepare residents for both the clinical environment and in preparation for boards.  Our goal is to provide a core curriculum with an active learning environment, while efficiently utilizing the time of both our residents and faculty.  We have daily conferences over the noon hour, as well as longer educational sessions during the +1 week when residents have fewer patient care responsibilities outside of clinic.  The topics of the curriculum are developed from review of the ABIM certifying exam blueprint, as well as specific learning objectives tested on the Internal Medicine In-Training Examination.

Daily conferences include:

  • Case Conferences
  • Lectures
  • ACP Board Preparation Curriculum
  • Journal Clubs
  • Clinicopathologic Conferences
  • Ethics Conferences
  • Patient Safety Conferences
  • GME Conferences
  • Housestaff Meetings
  • Chief Resident Conferences

+1 educational opportunities include:

  • Simulations
  • Self-directed online ambulatory-focused modules
  • Half day workshops and interactive sessions (Friday School)
