Our educational curriculum seeks to aspire our residents to be life long learners, practice evidence based medicine and incorporates multiple methods of content delivery to reach the learning styles of all our residents. Our curriculum is robust and includes case based learning, didactic lectures, high-fidelity simulation, POCUS training and more.
Held three times weekly, residents present cases and are guided along clinical decision making, diagnostic schemas and treatment approaches by chief residents, core faculty and program leadership. Once weekly outpatient cases rounds out the educational experience.
Held daily, the noon conference hour is protected by our program to maximize resident engagement in learning. Conference topics and styles vary and include traditional didactic lectures, interactive workshops, evidence based medicine article reviews and more.
Following the ABIM blueprint, our program has designed our educational content to prepare our residents for boards. With the designation of 'core content' our program records lectures and makes them available here for residents to watch again to solidify content.
Our content delivery styles are designed to appeal to all types of learners. Case based presentations and didactic lectures just scratch the surface. At UK, we used flipped classrooms, hands on workshops, podcasts and interactive cases to educate our residents.
Utilizing our resources at UKMC and VAMC; our junior residents participate in high-fidelity simulations led by our senior residents. We also provide multi-disciplinary code simulations alongside the resuscitation committee.
Alongside esteemed expert faculty in critical care medicine and emergency medicine, our residents get hands on POCUS training. Lung sliding, cardiac windows and IVC's; oh my!
Our faculty provide an intensive in-house board review course annually. These two hour sessions span the course of two weeks and have proven successful for our residents. Did you know we had a 100% board pass rate in 2019?
