The Half Day is a period of protected teaching time that is scheduled every Tuesday afternoon. It is resident driven with topics chosen by a committee of residents with input from the Program Director. Topics covered are mainly clinical, but also include Evidence-Based Medicine and Epidemiology. The sessions are generally given by attendings, and are generally case based. Sessions are on a three year rotation so that all topics will be covered once during the course of the three year Core program. The half-day also incorporates Case of The Week rounds and Morbidity and Mortality Rounds, three times per month and once per month respectively.
