Description

Traditional resident and student conferences have been stand-alone topics presented in a lecture format. This design led to decreased attendance and engagement along with a lack of overarching curricular guidance in our residency didactic program. Two years ago we embarked on a revised didactic curriculum. We implemented a yearlong repeating curriculum divided into weekly theme-based sessions presented during the noon hour. Small group, case-based conferences are organized and facilitated by internal medicine faculty and residents with subspecialty participation. A variety of teaching techniques are employed, including case-based discussions, simulations, evidence-based medicine literature review, and patient panels. A web-based learning management system houses faculty selected didactic material and encourages self-directed learning through pre-conference quizzes. In this workshop, we will first summarize our noon conference redesign and then provide opportunities for participants to generate and share ideas for resident and student didactic innovations that can be tailored to each institution’s unique needs. Each participant will be encouraged to generate an action plan for further consideration upon return to his/her institution with a repository of ideas and contacts for ongoing online discussion.
