Curriculum

We offer a variety of educational activities in order to reach everyone’s learning style. This includes morning report, bed side rounds, didactics, grand rounds, web-based modules, simulation training and home study opportunities.

Morning Report

Held every morning, Monday-Friday, at 8 am and hosted by the Chair of Medicine, Dr. Shawn Chillag. These sessions are a critical component of resident education in learning how different patient cases present, how to work them up and formulate treatment plans.

Didactics

We select didactic curriculum based on the in-training exam topics and American Board of Internal Medicine certification blueprint. We strive to reinforce and highlight the most board relevant topics. Didactics are given at the noon hour, typically 4 days a week.
