The resident clinical experience includes protected didactic time on Wednesday afternoons which, features gynecologic and obstetric simulation, research preparation and teaching, ethics, residents as teachers sessions, quality improvement and patient safety, and many other topics. Prior to the annual residency training in-service exam, there is a review course.
Other regularly scheduled clinical teaching venues include the following:
Daily-Obstetric board and Gynecologic patient rounds
Weekly-Gynecology preoperative case conference, Obstetrics case conference
Weekly Departmental Grand Rounds
Monthly-Morbidity and Mortality Conference, and Patient Safety Grand Rounds
We supplement protected didactics with e-learning using mobile applications. Finally, our residents are given time to prepare for and take the Fundamentals of Laparoscopic Surgery exam at the end of their PGY-1 year.
