Education is a central tenet of our department. Residents are exposed to various types of educational experiences including a rigorous morning didactic series, simulation activities, professional development opportunities and faculty mentorship in research endeavors and quality improvement projects. All residents, at the beginning of their intern year, receive an i-Pad from the department to use during the remainder of their training for educational and work purposes. Whether using the i-Pad for reading e-textbooks and articles, accessing electronic medical records or providing point of care teaching to patients and students, our residents are constantly using this device to further their learning or clinical care.
