Our internal medicine program has a strong educational curriculum. We have daily morning conferences that incorporate general internal medicine, subspecialty topics, Morbidity and Mortality, Clinical Pathological conferences, Journal club, Safety and Quality, Research topics and Board Review. Once per month we have Medical Jeopardy, which is a knowledge-bowl competition. Cardiology didactics are twice per month with one lecture being devoted to reading EKGs and the other lecture consisting of important cardiology topics.
Case discussion hour takes place in the afternoon where interesting floor and ICU cases are discussed with emphasis on management.
All residents attend the morning conferences, whereas the inpatient floor and ICU residents attend the case discussion hour in the afternoon.
Once per quarter we have Multidisciplinary Grand Rounds for topics of interests to the general medical community in Saginaw with outside speakers.
