Conferences

The Family Medicine Department and Residency Program offer a broad array of conference and workshop opportunities designed to enrich faculty, pre-doctoral, residency and fellow education. The following is a partial list and brief description of the major conference and seminar areas.

Grand Rounds Conference Series 

This educational series is held twice per week on Tuesday and Thursday at 12:15 to 1:15 PM in the main department conference room. It is designed with a major focus on residency education and is scheduled by the chief residents. An eighteen-month cycle of core curriculum topics are covered.

Resident Seminar 

This seminar series is held weekly on Thursday afternoons from 1:00 to 5:00 PM. This is a longer time block for learning and residents are excused from their other responsibilities to attend. This time is preferentially set aside for hands-on workshop experiences and educational activities that need a longer time frame than the traditional one-hour conference slot.

Journal Club 

This monthly conference is presented by residents with faculty guidance and promotes skills in critical review, life-long learning, and evidence-based thinking. It is one of our best-attended meetings.

Patient Safety Conference 

This case-based quarterly review of clinical performance promotes confidential group reflection and discussion. This is also one of our most popular presentations.

QUIP

A fifteen minute QUIP (Quick Unique Informative Practice-changing) occurs three times a week and is one of our most beneficial teaching and learning opportunities. Both faculty and residents present case-based topics that generate lively discussions.

Friday Sports Medicine Conference 

This weekly conference series includes sports and musculoskeletal topics presented by sports medicine faculty, fellows, and residents. It often focuses on practical radiology and hands-on learning.
