General Teaching Sessions
Every Monday at 12:30-1:30pm - The focus of teaching sessions caters to the lead up to the written or clinical examinations.
Trainees will have the opportunity to present a recent journal article of interest in the lead up to the written examination. As the clinical examination approaches, trainees are given the chance to present a long case in front of their peers, helping to prepare them for the real examination. Lunch is provided.
Hospital Grand Rounds are held on Thursdays at 12.30pm to 1.30pm. Lunch is provided for those who attend.
This teaching session runs from 3:30 to 5:30pm every week, and is targeted towards trainees sitting their examinations. Please see the written exam and clinical exam sections for more detailed information.
A series of lectures is held towards the end of each clinical year, with a focus on helping residents prepare for the transition to becoming a registrar. There is an emphasis on practical ways of addressing common clinical problems. Talks include an approach to chest pain, how to run a MET call and radiology interpretation. The series is recorded and available online for those who are off-site.
The monthly M & M Meeting is for all medical staff in the hospital, including the intensive care and emergency departments. The process of M & M Meetings are integral to a trainee’s exposure to clinical governance and quality assurance practices. Cases are reviewed, selected and discussed with a Consultant Physician prior to the presentation. Cases are selected based on potential issues with management which may lead to improvements in future practice.
