Education Opportunities

In years 2 and 3, each day begins with an interactive educational session with a focus on board review questions, discussion of challenging cases, improving office efficiency, and better communication.

The goal of the sessions that focus on board review is to review five questions each session and use the question as a starting point to guide further discussion and questions. The group then shares learning points with each other.

Formats for educational sessions in the intern year vary depending upon the rotation. Additionally, there is a longitudinal core curriculum spanning all three years that addresses topics in pediatrics, family health, behavioral sciences, surgical, and medical subspecialties. One half-day is allotted per month for these core topics.

Our core lectures are resident led, faculty facilitated, and interactive didactic sessions. Two to three additional half days per month are dedicated to didactic topics of resident choice, training in Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine, and journal club.

Dr. Nilesh Shah (Summa's Sports Medicine program director) leads morning report once monthly by reviewing a sports medicine case using a clinical discussion format.

Two annual skill building workshops provide an interactive setting for additional hands-on education in areas such as:

  • Procedures
  • Behavioral Science
  • Wellness
  • Sports Medicine

In addition, Summa provides paid conference time.
