Resident Conferences

Core Faculty Lectures: Academic Half Day - Friday (9:00 - 1:00 pm)

  • With the consolidation of our didactic series into one half day learning session, our goal is to reach residents on outpatient rotations with the premise that their minds can truly focus on learning during that time without interruption. The sessions are held on Friday mornings and are scheduled for outpatient/elective/otherwise available residents. Our goal is to increase the number of interactive sessions , case studies, primary literature review, etc., and shorten the traditional Powerpoint lectures. About 2/3 of our residents are able to attend each week.
