Didactic Lectures, Conferences and Committees
Our didactic learning component is an 18-month curriculum, which ensure that every resident is exposed to it during their training. These sessions occur every Thursday afternoon from 1pm to 5pm. They are divided into four general themes and coordinated
by Residency Program faculty.
All Residency Meeting (ARM)
The ARM meeting is a monthly meeting to discuss news, updates, and changes to the residency program. The meeting is led by the program director and attending by all faculty, residents, and program staff.
Ambulatory Clinic Report
Ambulatory Clinic Report (ACR) is a resident driven presentation during didactics that addresses a challenging outpatient clinical case. This experience is designed to emphasize Practice- Based Learning and
Improvement and Systems Based Practice competencies. Other clinical competencies should also be evident during presentation. Every third year resident presents at least once during training.
The purpose of our journal club is to appraise the evidence in published articles and to evaluate for clinical usability. All residents are required to present an article after they appraise and critic it. Residents
and faculty discuss the findings and decide on the usability.
Morbidity & Mortality (M&M)
M&M is a monthly resident-run conference involving the analysis of adverse outcomes in-patient outcomes, through peer review. The objectives of the M&M conference are to identify adverse outcomes associated with medical error, to modify behavior and judgment based on previous experiences, and to prevent repetition of errors leading
"Power Hour" is a monthly 1-hour, resident led, board review session under the supervision of our program director Dr. Jamal Islam, MD, MS.
