Residents are excused from clinical duties every Wednesday morning to attend 4 1/2 hours of educational programming in Emergency Medicine. They’re also protected from working in the Emergency Department every Tuesday evening, to ensure you can be well-rested for conference.
Lectures and workshops are conducted by EM faculty, visiting faculty, and residents from all stages of training. Joint lectures with other training programs, such as critical care, surgery, pediatrics, and internal medicine, are also a part of the core curriculum. We also have regular sessions on leadership, career planning, insurance, and medicolegal issues. Grand Rounds (given by outside invited leaders in EM), EM-ICU case conference, Trauma case conference, and Pediatrics case conference are held monthly.
The ACCEL Program is part of Stanford/Kaiser's unique and innovative curriculum. Please read more about it here.
