Video for New Interns and Residents posted

Before seeing the first patient, and after basic EPIC training, we recommend all incoming interns and residents to view this video created by 2017 outgoing residents. You will learn smart phrases that organize and create a high quality note and work flows that will make you more efficient from day one. This resource is also recommended for all clinicians seeing patients in the IMC. There is even a primer on macros and billing. Find the video here.

Didactics Sessions

8:00-8:30 AM

What are Didactic Sessions?

How should I Prepare for Didactic Sessions?

When and Where?

Didactic Cases are specially written to introduce you to the key elements of the diagnosis and treatment of 10-12 of the most common conditions you are likely to see in the Internal Medicine Center practice. The cases include a real life presentation for the condition with questions that lead you through all relevant issues of diagnosis and treatment. Links are provided to critical and current evidence-based guidelines

This page contains a calendar and links to access all cases. If you are the lead or back up presenter, be prepared to read the case and guide the group through answering the questions.

Even if you are not leading, work through all the questions ahead of the session using the guideline links provided.

Ready to see the Case? Click on the Case Name in the Calendar to Download a Case.

All Didactic Sessions are held in the Bullpen, or staffing area, in the IMC. Sessions start promptly at 8:00 so plan to be settled and ready to start  before then.

Leaders,  text your back up presenter if you know you will not be there on time.
