Curriculum schedule and rotations


There will be 5 hours of protected conference time per week. The faculty will cover the Emergency Department so you can attend conference! The didactic curriculum will repeat on an 18-month cycle, so each resident will have all content presented to them twice during the course of their residency. We will use many models of interactive learning including problem-based learning, small-group sessions, simulation, written board review, oral board review, assigned educator roles, as well as, traditional lectures. We also will be incorporating newer FOAMEd (Free Open Access Medical Education) resources for home study and asynchronous learning models. Each resident will be provided with an iPAD Pro for home-use and bedside medical applications.
