Morsani College of Medicine

Didactics

Our fellows have protected didactic time every Wednesday morning. This time coincides with and includes our Departmental Grand Rounds and M&M, which makes up 1-2 hours of the curriculum.  The remainder of the time is allocated for the REI curriculum.

This curriculum is based on ABOG’s Guide to Learning in Reproductive Endocrinology & Infertility and ACGME core competencies.  It consists of an assortment of lectures and Journal Clubs.

Additionally, once a month, we have Division Research meetings to discuss ongoing projects, brainstorm new projects, and meet with our faculty mentors.  In addition to the regular Wednesday morning curriculum outlined above, we have several other special scheduled didactic sessions throughout the year.  Some of these include:

  • Research Bootcamp: Scheduled at the beginning of each academic year (with the other OB-GYN Fellows).  This bootcamp includes a series of lectures (Biostats, Study design, etc.) as well as live tutorials for learning statistical software (SAS, SPSS, STATA) to prepare our fellows for successful thesis design and defense.
  • Wellness Bootcamp: Scheduled once per year, this is an opportunity for all of the OB-GYN subspecialty Fellows to spend time together, while focusing on wellness and having fun.
  • Robotic-Training Labs: Every year, we have a human cadaver lab at our state of the art Center for Advanced Medical Learning and Simulation(CAMLS). We practice robotic and laparoscopic surgery techniques with our attendings.
