Didactics

Family Medicine Didactics occurs weekly on Wednesday afternoons from 12:30 pm to 4:00 pm and includes topics presented by family medicine physicians and specialists. Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) requirements, such as chronic care team meetings, also occur during this time to maximize participation. Family Medicine-pertinent topics run on an 18-month cycle and routinely incorporate behavioral science and pediatric topics.

Other residency specific presentations include the following: Electronic Health Record (EHR) updates/best practices, Medical Decision Making (MDM), Morbidity and Mortality Conferences, and Resident/Faculty Meetings.

Our quality improvement curriculum, Longitudinal Outpatient Practice Improvement Rotation (LOPIR) occurs every other week, and it is dedicated to multi-disciplinary work groups or large group presentation on resident quality improvement projects. All Family Medicine Residents are expected to attend didactics unless on a restricted rotation.
