Core Didactic Series

Our program strives for a balance between learning at the bedside, in the clinical exam room, and in the conference room. To accomplish the latter, we have set aside Wednesday afternoons for our conferences, following a structured monthly template. This template involves Grand Rounds followed by resident educational conferences. These conferences are an effective mixture of workshops, problem-based learning cases, and case-based presentations. We also have a longitudinal inpatient curriculum consisting of a series of topics specific to the inpatient setting.
