Didactics

We hope to provide a robust didactic curriculum that is subject based, comprehensive for mastering the ABFM family medicine boards and prepares residents for full spectrum family medicine. Residents are provided protected time for a scheduled half day of didactics on a weekly basis. Didactics include a variety of teaching learning modules anywhere from power point lectures, to group discussions and debates, to simulated learning, journal clubs and wellness groups. The curriculum has been designed to be subject based so that each afternoon if committed to one subspecialty of family medicine: pediatrics, women’s health, cardiology, respiratory, gastroenterology, etc. Residents have shared lectures with the Greenville and Greer program to enhance their learning by utilizing resources available at these other programs. On a monthly basis, residents will travel to Greenville to participate in “Sim Center” workshops including point of care ultrasound, suturing skills, ALSO training, ACLS training, and many more. Residents will participate in teaching components of the curriculum, including journal clubs, statistical analysis, Morbidity-Mortality (M&M rounds), and Grand Rounds. Residents’ wellness is of the utmost importance at CFM-Oconee. We are committed to a wellness curriculum which is included in the weekly didactics on a regular basis and includes three to four afternoons per year that are purely dedicated to the wellness and mental health of our residents.
