Interactive Conference Series
Our live conference series runs for all three years of residency, and is divided into approximately one-month blocks by subject area (ie pulmonary, PICU, infectious disease, out-patient medicine, etc). This series takes an innovative approach to teaching in three important ways:
- Resident conferences are held during a block of protected time on Thursday afternoons from 12:30 to 3:30 PM.
- Our conferences are nearly always case-based rather than purely didactic lectures. We think that the potential for our faculty to teach is maximized by going through cases that illustrate specific teaching points within their areas of expertise. It also makes the conferences more interesting, interactive, and enjoyable.
- Resident talks, journal clubs, and board review sessions are also included in the weekly conferences in addition to the core subspecialty conferences.
