Every Wednesday afternoon, we hold our weekly educational sessions. These sessions include core lectures, academic enhancement topics, guest lectures, computer labs, hands-on POCUS training, and monthly OMT and musculoskeletal medicine sessions.
Our core lectures cover major topics in primary care. Our interdisciplinary faculty that include family physicians, pharmacists and psychologists facilitate these interactive sessions together.
Our academic enhancement topics include sessions on leadership, population, health, communication, community medicine, QI, journal club, M&Ms, interactive case discussions and OB educational sessions.
Once a month, we have our office wide meeting where we discuss population and panel management with our team members.
Three days a week, we hold 30-minute morning report sessions where we cover a variety of topics. These supplemental sessions include regular case discussions with our Sports Medicine faculty, Cardiology faculty and Psychiatry faculty. We also do shorter case discussions, cover board review questions and do practice "pager" questions to help residents prepare for on-call situations that arise. Additionally, we have monthly talks on women's health, pharmacy and practice management.
We hold rotating hands-on skill building workshops focused on procedures in sports medicine, urgent care, POCUS, dermatology, gynecology and genitourinary systems.
Our residents also hold several events throughout the year in collaboration with our simulation lab on both procedures and communication situations in challenging settings.
