In addition to daily didactic lectures, we also use a workshop format to teach curricular content targeted to specific resident class levels. 

In the first Orientation/Transition block of the academic year, residents have workshops, as well as projects, structured for the each class.  First year residents have a series of workshops geared toward orienting them to their continuity clinics. Second year residents learn skills to work as senior residents. Third year residents have workshops that cover professional development topics.

Again at mid-year, residents will have an opportunity in for further class-focused orientation workshops in a half-block format called “Beta”. Workshops at this time often focus on improving clinic efficiency, advanced EMR training, and other similar class-specific topics.

During the majority of the academic year, first and second year residents have two workshops per month and third year residents one workshop monthly.  These workshops include a variety of topics. First year residents have workshop on preventative care topics in pediatrics, obstetrical, and general adult medicine. Together, the first and second year residents work on advancing their office Dermatology and Gynecology procedural skills and their diagnosis and management of behavioral health issues like ADD/ADHD. Second year residents work on clinic Quality Improvement (QI) projects during their class-specific workshops. Third year residents have workshops that cover professional development topics and writing their Clinical Inquiries.  

In addition to the monthly workshops noted above, the second year residents also participate in six sessions dedicated to a Quality Improvement project.  This is to help fulfill the American Board of Family Medicine requirement of having at least one such activity completed prior to sitting for the certification boards in the third year of residency.
