Med-Peds Core Curriculum Lecture Series

Our four-year rotating conference schedule of combined medicine-pediatrics topics is designed so that no matter when you join our program, you’ll receive all the topics during your residency.

Interactive and Simulation Sessions Included

In addition to attending morning reports, journal clubs and lectures in both the internal medicine and pediatrics program during your rotations, our med-peds program has developed a four-year rotating core curriculum lecture series.

Med-Peds Conference is held one afternoon per month where lectures in topics in internal medicine, pediatrics and medicine-pediatrics are presented by both faculty and residents.

There is also an interactive session where special topics such as phone triage, end-of-life palliative care, WIC, breastfeeding and pediatric medicine taste-testing are covered by our chief resident or guest speakers.

The program has also developed a simulation curriculum, with 1-2 conferences per year taking place at the Behling Human Simulation Center. The main focus is immersive simulation, placing you in simulated clinical settings. The simulations will stress certain core topics like communication and patient safety. Procedures can also be included in simulation such as central venous line placement and lumbar puncture. 

Board Review Conference Series

We also conduct our own board review sessions on both internal medicine and pediatrics topics. They are held monthly before Core Curriculum Lecture Series topics and are presented by faculty.
