In addition to division specific conferences and the Thursday morning education conference, there are three mandatory conferences for the program. Morbidity and Mortality Conference occurs every Wednesday afternoon at 5:00 PM. Residents are responsible for presenting cases that are chosen for their educational and management learning points. The assigned resident is expected to develop a Power Point presentation and to review it with the responsible attending prior to the conference. Grand Rounds conferences with Visiting Professors occur every Thursday at 5:00 p.m. Finally, Journal Club takes place monthly during the academic year and is incorporated into the Thursday Education Conference.

  • Colon and Rectal Surgery
  • Minimally Invasive and Bariatric Surgery
  • Pediatric Surgery
