Our program offers a robust didactic curriculum with noon conference held five days a week. All conferences are recorded and available for later viewing. These conferences are considered protected education time for all residents.

In addition to daily noon conference, residents on subspecialty rotations (MICU, PCS, Cancer Center) receive additional subspecialty specific didactic lectures to enhance their clinical learning.

Academic Half-Days

Interns and residents attend an Academic Half-Day 1 afternoon during each AGIM, CGIM and Y-block. During this protected education time, residents are exposed to a huge variety of topics using various learning formats facilitated by our faculty. Examples include, primary care, business of medicine including documentation, billing and coding, medical education training, high value care, journal club and senior resident led conferences, among others.
