Resident Education

Interactive and FUN learning. Residents learning while playing Neurology Taboo!

We recognize that adult learners are each unique and learn in various ways. For this reason we incorporate various styles of teaching from "sage on the stage" to "guide on the side."

In addition to traditional didactic lectures we have a number of noon sessions dedicated to interactive team building style as well as case based learning. The didactic schedule is comprehensive. Lectures are Monday thru Friday from 12 PM -1 PM with lecture free days dispersed throughout the schedule where residents can catch up on professional tasks (i.e. evaluations, duty hours, etc.). This is protected time for the residents and the phone is held by APPs to decrease any interruptions. Wednesday morning is also an educational half day with lectures from 8 AM - 9 AM, Grand rounds at 9 AM and Clinical neurophysiology (EEG/EMG) lectures from 10 AM - 12 PM for those on CNP rotations.

Additionally we offer a number of other special series for junior residents so that they feel comfortable with important emergent cases, including ENLS training (PGY 1), Teambuilding boot-camp (PGY 1), Introductory lecture series for PGY 1 residents, 30 steps (PGY 2), brain-cutting sessions, and procedural training (L.P, central lines, brain death) in the SIM Center lead by chief residents and NICU faculty.

To encourage research and innovation we have a clinical methodology series to familiarize our residents with everything they need to know from A to Z in regards to research and publications. Additionally we have a Research Academy meeting once a month where faculty and residents not only present their scholarly activity but also discuss possible ideas with faculty and residents.

Resident Education is fluid as we make changes as needed based on resident input and suggestions.
