Conferences and Didactics

There are several scheduled subspecialty conferences each week. During the month of July, there is a “boot camp” for incoming fellows that covers basic topics and procedures in pulmonary and critical care medicine.

  • Pulmonary section conferences: Pulmonary conference occurs weekly on Thursdays at 4 pm. The format includes case conferences, research presentations, topic reviews, chest radiology, and journal club.
  • Critical care conferences: The Critical Care section meets twice weekly at 12:15 pm. On Tuesdays, there is a fellow-led conference and on Thursdays, there is a didactic session delivered by faculty covering a core topic in critical care medicine.
  • Multidisciplinary thoracic oncology conference: The Thoracic Tumor Board meets on Tuesdays at 8 am to discuss and make recommendations regarding the diagnosis and treatment of new patients with suspected or confirmed lung cancer.

In addition, fellows are encouraged to attend the regularly scheduled Department of Medicine Morbidity and Mortality conference on Wednesday and Medical Grand Rounds on Friday.
