Attending Rounds are held from 11:00 A.M. until noon Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. In this group setting consisting of three resident teams, an attending physician conducts rounds on appropriate teaching patients while emphasizing bedside teaching, physical diagnosis, and pathophysiology.
Clinicopathologic conference is an exercise modeled after the New England Journal of Medicines’ CPC and entails a case presentation by the resident, a detailed discussion of the case by an attending physician, and visual presentation of the pathologic findings by the pathologist. It is designed to extend the value of a case from bench to bedside, and aims to provide an all-encompassing view of the interface of clinical medicine and pathology. This conference is most relevant to the competencies of medical knowledge, communication and interpersonal skills, and practice-based learning and improvement.
