Residency-Based Didactics

Our formal didactic series occurs on Wednesday afternoons, and we have four hours of protected lecture time from 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM. The Pediatric Department attending staff and all off-service rotation attendings realize that our residents will be at didactics every Wednesday afternoon. Didactics usually consists of core lectures and presentations from residents, faculty, staff, and guest lecturers. A mix of case presentations, lectures, and typically lively interactive discussions keep the afternoons from becoming boring.

Simulation training is provided to enhance the residents’ skills on certain procedures.  This program has a dedicated faculty to be used as needed in the simulation center for training. The time in the Simulation lab gives residents an opportunity to demonstrate what they have learned.

Journal Club is held monthly. Journal articles will be discussed under close supervision of a faculty member. Residents learn to critique medical literature and learn from recent advances in medicine.
