Didactic Lectures and Conferences
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
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.
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 to complications.
Teamlet meetings are monthly clinic-specific meetings to discuss clinic
issues or updates. The meetings are led by the clinic medical directors
and all the staff from the clinics are in attendance.
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.
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.
"Power Hour" is a weekly 1-hour, resident led, board review session under the supervision of our program director Dr. Jamal Islam, MD, MS.
