Wednesday Morning Curriculum Conference:

Wednesdays, 7 - 8 am
Renzetti Conference Room on the 7th Floor of the Wintrobe Building

Our curriculum conference is conducted every Wednesday morning over breakfast. A series of talks covering topics integral to the practice of P&CCM is developed by fellows and program leadership. During the three years of fellowship training, a fellow will be exposed to major topics pertinent to the practice of P&CCM at least once. Both fellows and faculty members from within the division and outside experts present topics. This conference is intended to improve the day-to-day practice of the fellows, prepare fellows for board certification and enhance presentation and educational skills.

PGR is a one-hour conference on Thursday afternoons where educational cases pertaining to the practice of P&CCM are presented.
