Schedules & Work Hours

Didactics

Didactics is every Tuesday morning beginning at 7:30 a.m. with Grand Rounds, followed by a “mini” M&M case list. The cases are followed by reading/quizzes, ultrasound curriculum, simulation, resident research or wellness didactics. One day a month, a larger M&M case is presented and discussed. Journal Club during breakfast is presented and discussed once a month. Didactics are considered resident protected time – no additional duties should interfere with this learning environment.
