A full and robust schedule of conferences contributes to the active learning environment for medical residents:
Summer Conference Series:
July and August feature the summer conference series, in which the fundamentals of clinical decision-making and patient management are reviewed. Lunch is provided at these conferences.
These interactive, case-oriented lunch time conferences begin in September and continue through May. They take place two days per week and focus on a core curriculum in general internal medicine, internal medicine subspecialties and related specialties. Lunch is provided at these conferences.
Benjamin Gouley, MD, Medical Grand Rounds:
Wednesdays feature Benjamin Gouley, MD Medical Grand Rounds, at which visiting professors and guest lecturers share their expertise with medical residents and faculty.
Weekly firm conferences provide an informal group setting and serve as the perfect venue for journal club, morbidity and mortality review and medical ethics case conference. Lunch is provided at these conferences.
Evidence-Based Medicine and Research Conferences:
Residents have an opportunity to present their research in progress at these monthly conferences. In addition, journal articles are reviewed and critical appraisal of the literature skills are taught. Lunch is provided at these conferences.
Regional and National Meetings:
Residents are encouraged to attend regional and national meetings of the American College of Physicians and the subspecialty societies. The Department of Medicine offers time off and conference stipends to help residents take advantage of these opportunities.
The Department of Medicine’s commitment to resident education is reflected clearly in the opportunities, encouragement and support provided for resident research. The PGY-1 research rotation includes supervised experience in computer-assisted literature searching, an introduction to epidemiology and biostatistics and instruction in critical review of the medical literature. Residents select an area of interest and present their findings at the annual Department of Medicine Resident Research Symposium.
A number of research projects initiated in the PGY-1 year have culminated in presentations at national meetings or publications in peer-reviewed journals.
The Department of Medicine encourages all residents to participate in scholarly activity and we are especially proud of their research achievements.
Elective rotations offer additional opportunities for residents to explore areas of special interest, broaden their horizons and meet their individual learning objectives.
Internal medicine subspecialty services provide residents with valuable experience as consultants, and most subspecialties include substantial experience in the outpatient setting. Interdisciplinary experiences are offered in a number of areas including women’s health, HIV, medical aspects of transplantation, musculoskeletal disorders, palliative care and medical ethics. Elective rotations in pediatrics, gynecology, psychiatry, orthopedics, physical medicine and rehabilitation and general surgery offer opportunities for residents to master the cognitive and procedural skills essential for success in primary care practice. Einstein Medical Center residents work closely with their advisors and firm chiefs to plan their elective rotations.
