HUP Residency - Conferences

There are two 45-minute conferences from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. daily. The faculty presents both clinical and non-clinical material in various formats, including didactic lectures and interesting case reviews. Core clinical curriculum, covering all subspecialty areas, is presented completely and repeated every two years. ER Radiology is repeated yearly. This combination of required rotations and formal conference curriculum insures the training of clinically outstanding radiologists.

Non-clinical curriculum is repeated every two years and includes topics covering Economics and Healthcare Management, Informatics and Health Services, Image Acquisition and Reconstruction, Image Processing, Clinical Research (Study Design, Biostatistics, and the Art of Writing Papers and Grants) and Quality and Safety. This non-clinical portion of the curriculum gives residents the skill sets needed to own their discipline and be the future leaders of radiology.

HUP's Radiology Grand Rounds are held weekly. The department has a resident journal club (Radiologic Sciences, Health Policy and Quality and Safety) with faculty members facilitating discussion on a rotating basis. Many sections within radiology including Body CT, Body MRI, MSK and CVI and many departments outside radiology have subspecialty, weekly noon conferences as well.
