Conferences and Lecture Topics
In addition to clinical and research rotations, there are a variety of conferences to enhance the fellows’ learning opportunity including daily inpatient rounds with the attending, intensive care unit ward team and general ward team; weekly inpatient sign-out rounds with all members of the pulmonary section; fellows conference where a pulmonary topic is reviewed, and monthly radiology/pathology, journal club, and research conference. Additionally, all fellows are expected to attend the monthly Joint Fellowship Curriculum, which is overseen by the Department of Pediatrics. Fellows are strongly encouraged to attend Pediatric Grand Rounds and Professors rounds and any other presentations or conferences they feel would benefit their education during the fellowship.
Journal Club – fellows present a variety of journal articles on interesting Pulmonary related publications. Faculty and staff from the section attend.
Radiology/Pathology Conference – a monthly conference to discuss interesting cases/films with the Radiology/Pathology department.
Fellows Conference – a weekly case conference
Joint Fellowship Curriculum – a monthly conference designed to address both the academic requirements mandated by the ACGME and the career and personal development of fellows within the Department of Pediatrics.
As junior faculty members fellows are expected to supervise and teach pediatric residents and medical students in the case of hospitalized pediatric pulmonary patients. Several teaching and speaking opportunities are available to create a well rounded learning portfolio. As part of their fellowship training, fellows will be provided with instruction in clinical teaching skills. Fellows will supervise 2-4 residents each month and a variable number of medical students assigning tasks and reviewing consultation notes before presenting to the attending faculty. In the second and third years of the fellowship, fellows will present monthly on a variety of core lecture topics to rotating residents. They will develop necessary communication and teaching skills.
