For Professionals

Educational Curriculum

Program combines lectures delivered in a state-of-the-art center of education with group learning and bedside teaching activities.

We believe a variety of teaching modalities are essential to developing the lifelong learning skills and critical thinking capabilities necessary for mastering patient care. Curriculum includes:

Morning Report

  • Case based morning report held every morning in a conference room conveniently situated next to the patient care areas, supervised by the program director.
  • The skills of deduction, evidence–based decision making and cost–effective care will be demonstrated and taught.
  • Following the meeting, research questions raised by the residents during the morning report and the questions will be revisited–now with greater background knowledge–at sign out time in the afternoon.

Noon Conference

  • Teaching faculty cover core topics in internal medicine, humanities in medicine, patient communication skills and procedural skills.

Journal Club

  • A monthly Resident Journal Club reviews evidence–based research and how it affects our clinical decision making.
  • Journal Club will be supervised either by the chief resident or a faculty member, who will review common clinical scenarios encountered on the floors, new literature and value–based care.

Clinical Grand Rounds

  • Clinical grand rounds are held monthly and are provided by exceptionally skilled guest faculty from prestigious academic centers in Florida and nationwide.
  • Residents are also expected to present at Medical Grand Rounds during PGY 2 and 3 training.

Morbidity and Mortality Conference

  • Analyses of unexpected deaths, adverse outcomes and clinically challenging cases.

Board Review Sessions

  • A faculty–lead board review is required to achieve a 100 percent pass rate for certification by The American Board of Internal Medicine.
  • All residents are expected to sit for the ABIM in–training examination every year.
