Didactic Description

Morning Report

  • Morning Report is led by a one of our core faculty clinicians, which consists of all residents meeting to review and discuss various aspects of medical knowledge and clinical practice. This is achieved through several different modalities, including residents presenting a current case/patient, simulated/virtual patient (through ACP program), Practice Comlex/USMLE-type questions, review of radiologic imaging, review of USPSTF guidelines as well as supporting literature.
  • During certain blocks of time, specialists (E.g. nephrologist, neurologists, endocrinologist, gastroenterologist etc.) are brought in for oriented conversation toward specific aspects of medicine where a resident presents a current case/patient and the specialists directs a relevant educational conversation on the subject.

Ambulatory Case Lecture and Presentation
