Our Program


The didactic lecture series is structured as a protected and dedicated academic half-day every Thursday morning. All residents will be required to attend except for those covering the ICU or nights. Residents on pre-approved external elective rotations are also excused. While in-person participation will be required for most, all sessions will be offered virtually as well.

Sessions will also be recorded and the material available online so those absent can review from anywhere, at any time. Attendance is taken by scanning a QR code upon arrival and completing a survey at time of dismissal.
