Educational Activities/Teaching Conferences

Dr. Fetkenhour Teaching

The importance of a didactic curriculum as an integral and essential complement to clinical curriculum is not overlooked. In fact, our PM&R Residency Program incorporates dedicated teaching sessions and Journal Clubs into the program, including an emphasis on required research. Residents meet every Thursday morning for four hours and one evening per month for these educational experiences; they have the opportunity to learn with their colleagues, have thoughtful discussions on relevant topics, and share their rotation experiences with each other. The didactic courses cover the topics listed in the Part I Certification Outline from the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. Each course concludes with an in-house examination to allow residents to demonstrate the information they learned. These methods of teaching, along with self assessment exams, help to prepare our residents for their board examinations and careers.
