Topics covered include general internal medicine, subspecialty conferences, resident journal club, resident conferences, clinicopathologic conference, continuous quality improvement, medical jeopardy, morning report, and others.

Clinicopathologic conference is led by a third year resident. A case is chosen in which pathology assisted in reaching a definitive diagnosis. The case is presented, differential discussed, and pathology reviewed.

The purpose of Continuous Quality Improvement is to provide a forum to discuss medical errors, morbidity, mortality, and error prevention. This conference is designed to elucidate problems with healthcare delivery both in terms of systems error and human error.

The Journal Club is held throughout the year. This conference, which consists of a resident-led discussion of an original article, is designed to educate each resident on the intricacies of research methodology and its applicability to the medical literature.

This activity provides an enjoyable, fun, and fast paced way to review pertinent teaching cases, medical knowledge, and the occasional general trivia category.

The Chief Resident leads morning report in which PGY-1 residents present cases to the group followed by a discussion focusing on the differential diagnosis, diagnostic strategy, and management. This forum provides a comfortable learning environment for medical students, residents, and attending physicians alike.

Residents are required to present a lecture on a topic of their choosing each year.
