The residency supports four hours of weekly educational conference. This time is protected from clinical duty and all residents are expected to attend. An 18 month curriculum is in place that covers the “Model of the Clinical Practice of Emergency Medicine.” Conference time includes didactic lectures given by Emergency Medicine faculty, selected faculty from other areas of medicine, guest speakers from outside our institution, and residents. In addition to lectures, the residency incorporates case presentations, case based small group discussions, “visual diagnosis/code red” rounds, procedure labs, and simulation into the weekly educational conference time.
