Morning Teaching Conference
Unlike traditional resident report, Morning Teaching Conference has a unique hybrid structure that allows for high-yield learning while fitting into a typical resident work day.
Residents meet in the morning to present and discuss patient cases and discuss evidence-based answers to clinical questions, and participate in lectures by various faculty.
Morning Teaching Conference is held at both UC San Diego Medical Center in Hillcrest and the VA San Diego Healthcare System in La Jolla on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. Medicine Grand Rounds are held on Wednesday mornings In La Jolla.
At VASDHS, Radiology Rounds are held on Friday mornings.
Over the noon hour, weekly morbidity and mortality conferences, weekly intern reports and weekly faculty lunch lectures take place. In addition, Friday afternoons are devoted to the Friday School curriculum.
The program provides lunch during morbidity and mortality conferences and faculty lunch lectures.
The weekly faculty lunch lectures cover topics from a curriculum of key internal medicine subjects. Each talk is focused on the diagnosis, management and frontiers in common pathology seen in internal medicine. There are also talks on evidence-based medicine, ethics, resident issues, insurance models and documentation standards.
Friday School is a longitudinal, 3 year curriculum held every Friday afternoon. This is a protected time for interns and residents to cover important topics from the various subspecialties within internal medicine. The goal is to have more interactive sessions which often involve skills workshops such as ultrasound, field trips, patient interaction, and evidence-based journal clubs.
Ambulatory Care Conferences
Residents participate in interactive case discussions the afternoon of their continuity clinics with faculty menbers at all sites. These cases focus on common primary care issues.
Primary Care Conference
A primary care curriculum is presented during the first 30 minutes of the continuity clinic day.
One day weekly, interns participate in their own conference during which they present current inpatient cases, discuss differential diagnoses and explore therapeutic options.
