Educational Conferences

The Internal Medicine residency program takes pride in its strong educational conference series.

  • All residents can attend our Noon Conference Series on weekday lunchtimes which includes case presentations, journal club and board review sessions.
  • All interns and residents on their Y block rotations (outpatient / electives) attend Academic Half Day (AHD) every Friday afternoon, approximately 24, 3-hour sessions per resident per year. AHD includes didactic sessions on clinical topics led by faculty and fellows as well as sessions that focus on: “intern boot camp”, research and scholarly work, healthcare disparities, group coaching sessions, intern case reports, and procedural training in our simulation center.
  • We have Morbidity, Mortality, and Improvement Conferences weekly at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center and the White River Junction VA and grand rounds weekly at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center with a range of internal and external speakers.
  • Our Inpatient X block rotations have associated teaching sessions – typically 90 minutes per week spread out over several days – in which interns and residents rotating on the service take part in tutorials focused on key topics relevant to the rotation. These are delivered by faculty and fellows in a structured format.
  • Our Outpatient General Internal Medicine Y blocks have associated teaching sessions every Friday morning for all residents on those rotations. This structured curriculum builds knowledge and skills in ambulatory medicine over the course of 3 years.
