We provide a full schedule of rich and varied didactic sessions for all types of learners:
Friday Didactic Sessions
Every other Friday afternoon will be dedicated to resident block lectures, allowing more time for interactive teaching methods such as workshops, small groups, and class-specific sessions for each PGY level. Several longitudinal curricula such as culinary health, residents as teachers, the business of medicine, simulation, quality improvement, career planning, and advanced communication skills are taught in this venue.
Board Review Curriculum
Woven into our noon lecture series is a board review curriculum with a topical focus of the month designed to maximize preparation for board exams. This curriculum repeats twice over the course of your residency to ensure important topics are not missed.
Continuity Clinic Curriculum
There is a well-child curriculum presented every month, which follows the age progression throughout your residency. We utilize the Johns Hopkins Harriet Lane Continuity Clinic Curriculum and the Yale Primary Care Pediatrics Curriculum as well as QSTREAM, which is a “spaced education” program where questions on important continuity topics are emailed every few days for a direct easy-to-study method of teaching.
Resident as Teacher Curriculum
The goal of this curriculum is to give residents opportunities to perform didactic teaching during bedside rounds, continuity clinic, noon conferences, and Friday didactic sessions. Residents learn skills and techniques on performing bedside teaching, giving feedback, addressing difficult learners, using different technologies and formats for didactic teaching, and professionalism. The curriculum includes residents teaching board relevant topics, Pediatrics in Review content, and a review of the American Academy of Pediatrics’ clinical guidelines and policy statements.
