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.
