Medicine Teaching Rounds
Teaching rounds are held daily, usually conducted by the service
attending physician, but occasionally are held by faculty
subspecialists or other guest educators. Rounds offer a variety
of learning experiences, including bedside presentations,
literature review of selected core clinical issues, guest
subspecialty rounds and in-depth topic presentations. In addition
to formal teaching rounds, each team has daily management rounds
with their service attending.
Board Review and Educational Conferences
The Department of Medicine allows time for PGY-II and PGY-III
residents to attend national medical conferences. Many PGY-III
residents choose to take a Board Review Course as their senior
conference. To facilitate preparation for the Boards, the
department purchases the American College of Physicians' Medical
Knowledge Self-Assessment Program for all categorical residents.
