We believe traditional noon conference with PowerPoint and lunch is obsolete.
We created the Academic Half Day on Thursday afternoons to move
us away from simply showing and knowing, and more toward knowing and doing.
Groups of 8-10 residents work together in a longitudinal learning community with consistent faculty mentorship over the course of the year. Residents rate Academic Half Day as the highest rated conference in the program.
We start with knowledge gained by assigned readings and work towards application of that knowledge by working through clinical cases.
You will not sit passively in Academic Half Day. For example, during the acute coronary syndrome presentation we ask you to write a set of admission orders for an ACS patient. For the neuro exam presentation you perform an actual
exam with an expert neurologist. And for Acid-Base we flipped the classroom -- you watch the 'lecture" ahead of
time, and then use the Acid Base Workbook during
the conference (same for introduction to
We never do the same thing twice, but we always DO something.
We protect this time for learning. Hospitalists and senior residents admit patients and cover most of the wards (excluding the code team) during the Academic Half Day. You will not have ambulatory clinic during this time.
If you miss a conference you can review all the materials on our residency website and you can meet with members of your learning community and work together as a team.
