Educational Conferences

Residents are required to attend the weekly GU Conferences and Radiology Conference, which start at 7:00 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. sharp. The Concord resident will attend the Wednesday morning conferences.

M&M - held monthly

  • Residents will track M&Ms and compile a list each month. Ideally the resident involved with the case should present the case and a brief discussion of how the M&M could have been avoided. Every M&M should be listed on a separate M&M sheet and the discussion portion of the sheet filled out after the conference. All of the sheets for the month are then submitted to the residency coordinator.
  • The chief resident at Dartmouth-Hitchcock will assign one resident to present a short talk on a specific M&M each month.


  • Chief residents are responsible for ensuring that there are adequate cases to present each week. There should be at least one case presented weekly from the VA.
  • The first Wednesday of the month is Pedi. Resident on the Pedi Service is responsible to pick and present cases.
  • Cases are submitted to the radiology resident in advance.
