Conferences

Formal educational conferences are presented regularly by our department. Teaching fellows, residents, and medical students is a regular, daily activity of the faculty.

Weekly departmental Grand Rounds, organized by the chairman, covers a variety of gynecologic and obstetrics topics throughout the year. Full- and part-time faculty, fellows, residents, nurses, medical students, and visitors attend these presentations.  CME credits are granted for attendance at Grand Rounds.

The monthly departmental Morbidity and Mortality (M&M) Conferences evaluate team performance of obstetrical deliveries and gynecologic procedures on patient services.

The Annual Resident Research Day is a special event of great educational significance in the residency program. Residents and fellows are required to develop a research project with a faculty sponsor, conduct the research, submit a paper, and present orally before a panel of peers, faculty, and judges. Each paper must have a research element beyond that which might be found by simple literature review. The first such event was held in 1966; Resident Research Day has evolved into the educational highlight of the academic year. Many of the residents' papers have been published.
