Resident Conferences

Core Faculty Lectures: Noon conference (12:00 -1:00 PM) 

  • Our noon conferences follow an 18 block core curriculum. Each block is designated for a different subspecialty following the American Board of Pediatrics’ content specifications using the highest yield topics per year in these sessions. The full 18-month curriculum will repeat during the residents’ three years, reinforcing the information for boards study.

Morning Report: Monday - Thursday (8:00 - 9:00 AM) 

  • Run by the upper level wards residents, this conference involves a patient case presentation with related teaching points and board preparatory questions. Residents present a recently admitted case; discuss workup, diagnosis, pathophysiology of disease, and treatment. It is interactive and all residents and faculty are encouraged to participate. Chief residents add related teaching points and upload the information via PowerPoint onto our resident website for independent study. 

Outpatient Morning Conference: Monday - Thursday (8:00 - 8:30 AM) 

  • Residents on outpatient rotation meet to lead half hour discussions on topics of acute care related to outpatient pediatrics in an interactive case-based format. 

Chairman’s Conference: Monthly (12:00 -1:00 PM) 

  • Known by the residents as the “Stump the Chumps Hour.” Third year residents present the most challenging diagnostic case that they encountered from their time during residency. The case is presented to faculty who are challenged to come up with the diagnosis. They must discuss aloud their thinking as they develop a differential diagnosis, request testing, procedures, etc.
