Medicine-Pediatrics Residency Conferences In addition to the core conference series each parent department offers, the Med-Peds residents and faculty get together twice every month for educational and programmatic meetings. We have a a monthly Med-Peds Rounds where core topics are reviewed as well as evidence based CATs (critically appraised topics) and reviews of developmental pediatric topics. Faculty and residents present at this conference. As well, the med-peds residency committee meets once a month to review programmatic improvements. The program directors hosts a fall and a spring Med-Peds retreat each year at their homes. Residents gather for 1- 2 hours to discuss programmatic issues, recruitment and pearls of wisdom from our upperclassmen to our interns to perhaps make residency easier for them. This is followed by a dining and social event for the remainder of the retreat. This is a wonderful opportunity for the residents to gather and socialize as a group.
