There will be a mandatory half day of didactics weekly. These didactics sessions are being developed using a new curriculum by Family Medicine educators, vetted and managed by the Association of Family Medicine Residency Directors and the Society for Teachers of Family Medicine. These primarily case-based, high-quality core subjects will be used some during core inpatient rotations. The physicians involved have an interest in teaching our residents. They use resources and CME type opportunities to support their teaching acumen. Regular resident feedback will help us continually improve and adjust didactic content.
This competency-based curriculum content is organized by resident year. The curriculum includes presentations, facilitators’ guides, cases for discussion, and quizzes for more than 120 residency topics, with more being added weekly. Family Medicine faculty, and sometimes specialists, will present didactics. Senior residents will have the opportunity to present some of these didactics. Residents will have access to robust UW Helplinks medical resources, including Up To Date.
