In addition to the core conference series each parent department offers, the Med-Peds residents and faculty get together three times every month for educational and programmatic meetings. Two Med-Peds Rounds occur each month, where core topics are reviewed as well as evidence based CATs (critically appraised topics) and reviews of developmental pediatric topics. As well, the med-peds residency committee meets once a month to review programmatic improvements.
The program directors hosts a fall and a spring Med-Peds retreat each year at their homes. Residents gather for 1- 2 hours to discuss programmatic issues, recruitment and pearls of wisdom from our upperclassmen to our interns to perhaps make residency easier for them. This is followed by a dining and social event for the remainder of the retreat. This is a wonderful opportunity for the residents to gather and socialize as a group.
