Five of our outstanding internal medicine residents present their research spanning a wide range of topics within the subspecialities of internal medicine.
What disparities exist within our current medical education system? Does bias exist within the AOA selection process? Are biased letters of recommendation having long term impacts on the success of our learners? How can we overcome these disparities to ensure a diverse and vibrant learning community? Join us as our master clinician and educator, Dr. Melissa McNeil, and PGY3 Med-Peds resident, Dr. Dedeepya Konuthula, examine educational disparities and offer strategies for overcoming them.
How can we best protect our most vulnerable patients as we head into a fall and winter season with Covid-19 and influenza? How do social determinants of health impact our care delivery and outcomes? What can we do to address the many structural barriers to care deliver and improved patient outcomes?
Why are we masking? Are face masks increasing rates of asymptomatic infection? Is asymptomatic infection able to provide immunity?
Join our Grand Rounds Sept. 15 to hear from Dr. Monica Gandhi from UCSF on the importance of masking and its impact on asymptomatic infection rates as well as from Dr. Bryan McVerry who will summarize the REMAP trial and our REMAP protocol and Dr. David Nace who will summarize our SNF strategy, outcomes and implementation of state grant funding.
How are you teaching students/learners to perform video visits? Join us for today’s Medicine Grand Rounds when some of our master clinician educators will share their expertise and best practices!
