Specific to Internal Medicine is a didactic program designed to cover the core curriculum and the core competencies. Weekly Harrison’s Reading Club/Board Review is held on Wednesday mornings at Des Peres Hospital. This is facilitated by the Program Director or other teaching physicians. In addition, internal medicine journal reviews are held on campus.
The IM residency is one of six residency programs at Des Peres Hospital. As such, the residents not only have the benefit of their dedicated didactic program, but also are able to participate in the didactics of the specialty program when rotating on those services. Des Peres Hospital has a Morning Report presentation and Noon Conference,both held 5 days per week.
The Morning Report is a resident driven educational program in which residents present topics specific to their specialties. These programs are focused for the PGY-1s and medical students. Internal Medicine residents, on house-based rotations, are expected to attend these presentations. On Tuesdays, Internal Medicine residents facilitate this presentation. Noon Conference is held daily and is presented by attending staff physicians interested in educating our residents. Most topics are primary care related. These presentations are focused at all levels of training.
