Educational Resources

Educational Activities


The residency uses Blackboard, to provide one-stop shopping for residents and faculty to access materials 24/7 from any computer. This one-stop shopping online curriculum resource is host to presentations, handouts, journal articles and other rotation-based learning materials to support residents' education. 


We also use Medhub, an online evaluation program, to do all evaluations of residents as well as resident evaluations of faculty and rotations. Resident feedback is an essential part of our program—we are always working to improve our program and meet the educational needs of our residents.
