Internal Medicine Residency

Didactic Component

The Internal Medicine Residency provides multiple didactic conferences for information mastery.  There are many facets to the conferences and their variety provides an interesting and diverse experience that complements the clinical training at Lehigh Valley Health Network.
The didactic conferences are scheduled every day from 12p-1p and on Wednesdays from 12p-3p (protected education time).  These conferences include the following broad range of presentations: Core subspecialty lectures (annual lecture series), Presentations provided by residents, Medical Grand Rounds, Resident Report, Journal Club, Show & Tell, Schwartz Rounds, Resident Development seminars, Morbidity & Mortality conference and many subspecialty and special lectures.  See didactic links for more information.   
There is also a supplemental ambulatory didactic series scheduled for each cohort on their ambulatory week.  This session occurs at the 17th street and consists of a three year rotating cycle of common ambulatory topics.
For the osteopathic physicians completing the tracking program, there are also monthly OMM seminars that include topics that range from the OMM Exam overview to specific evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of each anatomical group.
