INTERNAL MEDICINE RESIDENCY
The Uphouse Conference Room:
Named after Dr. William J. Uphouse, former Chief of Oncology at Tripler, the Uphouse Learning Center is a state-of-the-art facility equipped with a
Smartboard and a large screen LCD projector as well as other audio-visual equipment.
Morning report is held in the Uphouse Learning Center every weekday morning from 7:30-8:15 a.m. The morning report curriculum is a dynamic mix of internal medicine ward cases, night float admission cases, outpatient general medicine clinic cases, and subspecialty clinic cases. During most months, the schedule may also feature a “flea circus” of clinical vignettes, a specialty skills seminar, an ECG seminar, and TAMC grand rounds.
Noon Conference is conducted on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays from 12:15-1 p.m. in the Uphouse Learning Center. These core curriculum lectures are given by Department of Medicine staff members. Board review consisting of a Jeopardy-style competition or board-style questions occurs on Thursdays.
TAMC’s new state-of-the-art Simulation Center is located on the eleventh floor in the Medical Library. Residents participate in regularly scheduled simulation cases which may occur either in the Simulation Center or “in situ” on one of the hospital wards.
A regular journal club is held monthly. A variety of topics in areas such as ethics, statistics, clinical pathology, interdisciplinary topics and military medicine are scheduled regularly throughout the academic year using an 18 month revolving curriculum. There is a daily conference in the Internal Medicine Clinic that uses the Yale Ambulatory Curriculum. Housestaff also have the opportunity to attend subspecialty tumor boards, hospital-level conferences, and several off-site conferences held locally.
