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