Didactics are protected time for residents (resident is free of clinical duties) and occur weekly on Tuesday afternoons. Faculty and guests are involved in delivering didactics, and residents will also develop their teaching skills by leading journal club and presenting case conferences.
Clinical skills evaluations will take place 1-2 times per PGY year. The resident performs a comprehensive patient interview with one faculty member present. Faculty members will provide formal, structured feedback to help residents develop and refine their interview and assessment skills.
Additionally, each resident will be paired with an individual faculty supervisor. Supervision aims to guide the resident’s professional development and goals, which may include teaching, research, and career planning. Supervision occurs weekly for at least one hour.
