Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas Pulmonary and Critical Care Fellows develop teaching skills necessary to educate patients, families, medical students and residents by attending conferences and faculty development seminars, completing online lessons and by observing experienced Attending physicians in a teaching environment.
Pulmonary & Critical Care conferences are held weekly: Trauma & Critical Care on Tuesdays and Pulmonary on Thursdays as well as Interstitial Lung Disease held bi-weekly on Thursdays. Fellows and residents present cases encountered in the inpatient or outpatient setting to provide learning opportunities. The presentations include a summarized literature review for discussion.
In Journal Club, Fellows are required to select journal club articles from peer-reviewed journals for monthly presentation. This is a self-directed learning activity for Fellows to improve knowledge and expertise in a particular disease process. Journal clubs are critiqued by peers and superiors and feedback is given to Fellows.
Other conferences include:
Pulmonary and Critical Care Core Curriculum Conference
Department of Medicine Research Conference
Internal Medicine Grand Rounds
M&M – Critical Care Conference
