Conferences

Our Med-Peds residents attend both categorical and Med-Peds conferences. 

Med-Peds Noon Conference

The joint educational component of the UM/JMH Med-Peds Program is the once weekly Med-Peds noon conference series. The Med-Peds noon conference curriculum is based on a two year rolling curriculum centered on core ambulatory and inpatient topics in both Internal Medicine and Pediatrics and unique to Med-Peds.  Speakers consist of faculty, residents and select fellows. Resident speakers may request guest attending facilitators.

Each academic period consists of four major categories of discussion (one per week):

  • Evidence-Based Guidelines
  • Ambulatory Medicine Topic
  • Interactive Case Discussion or Simulation
  • Evidence-Based Research Article

Med-Peds Clinic Conference Series

We are very excited to introduce a new clinic conference series to our curriculum.  This program utilizes the established Yale Office-Based Medicine curriculum and the Yale Primary Care Pediatrics curriculum to hone residents' knowledge and skills in ambulatory medicine.  Learners are assessed via pre- and post-tests to ensure we continually tailor the information to meet their needs.  Third and fourth year residents serve as co-facilitators along with our APD during these case-based discussions which provides our residents with yet another opportunity to develop their skills as physician educators.

Med-Peds Grand Rounds

In 2012, the Med-Peds program expanded resident academics with our quarterly interdisciplinary Med-Peds Grand Rounds lectures. These CME accredited lectures are global health focused as a core part of our global health track curriculum or Med-Peds specific with topics such as Transitional Care, Care of the family. They intended audience includes categorical faculty and residents, medical students as well as students and faculty from our Department of Epidemiology and Public Health.
