Didactics and Conferences

Our fellows participate in a curriculum that offers educational sessions on topics spanning the vast learning components of PHM (with attention to preparing for PHM boards)as well as sessions on basic research methodology and statistics as well as ethics and professional development. Our fellows also participate in journal clubs, morbidity and mortality conferences and departmental grand rounds.
