Our residency program has morning report daily from 8am to 8:30am in our new conference room in Jennie Sealy Hospital. On most days, PGY-2 and
PGY-3 residents present patient cases for work-up and discussion.
In addition to the exercises below, PGY-3 residents also give
presentations about different subject matter in a particular field of
interest. This allows development of their public speaking skills and to
educate residents about something that interests them. Prior Resident
Talk topics have included: inpatient diabetes control, wound care,
interpreting PFTs, and allergy/immunology for the internist.
- The goal of the cases is to present both common and uncommon diseases and then focus on a teaching point of the residents discretion.
- On other days, a team-based approach is used to work-up cases seen at UTMB with an emphasis on teaching points relevant to the presented case.
- On Fridays, faculty are invited to participate and work-up the patient case. They offer valuable teaching points to the residents and offer expertise with years of experience.
