First year residents also attend lectures, grand rounds and case conferences on their respective hospital services.
Noon conference provides the forum for a variety of educational opportunities. Residents and faculty meet together to discuss call from the night before and the hospital service. Additionally, noon conference serves as the venue for didactic lectures and workshops presented by family physicians and subspecialists; focused chart reviews presented by residents; case conferences (geriatric, obstetrics, behavioral science) organized by faculty members and various other topics of interest. Included in the noon conference schedule are adult/pediatric murmur clinic and dermatology clinic. These clinics are directed by board certified specialists providing residents the opportunity to further enhance their knowledge and clinical exposure within these disciplines.
