Daily lunchtime conferences provide formal didactic and case-based learning experiences. Conferences are tailored toward the new ABR computer-based exam. Lunch is provided by the department. The conference room utilizes all modern display equipment including a large-screen projector, wireless keyboard and mouse, and a PACS-compatible computer system for easy presentation of cases.
There are two 45-minute conferences a day. Additionally, residents attend a physics conference bi-monthly, and first-years attend a weekly conference which reviews the introductory radiology book Brandt and Helms. The residents also can attend other multidisciplinary conferences in chest, neurology, mammography and pediatrics.
An example of our current schedule is below:
Every other year, we participate in the ACR RLI economics program. In addition, we have a quality / patient safety curriculum with lectures every 2 months.
