Conferences

Educational Conferences

The conferences described below comprise the required departmental educational sessions for residents. The conference attendance policy delineates which conferences are required for which residents. Attendance is monitored through sign-in sheets that are removed 10 minutes into the conference, and compiled in New Innovations. An overall conference attendance of 80% is required of each resident.

Various other conferences (e.g., journal clubs, multidisciplinary conferences, CPC) are strongly encouraged but not required. The structure of the didactic and conference schedule is designed to provide continuous gains in knowledge and skills in the various content domains over the sometimes prolonged gaps between rotations in some areas.
