Johns Hopkins Medicine - ACCM: "Colleges" Curriculum
Johns Hopkins ACCM Home

"Colleges" Curriculum

The Colleges
The residency is split into four groups, or colleges, of roughly the same size. Each college has an even distribution of CA-1s, CA-2s, and CA-3s, and each has a faculty advisor. The faculty advisor has a hand in designing the college day experience for their respective group. This college design is intended to foster camaraderie and team spirit in a specialty that is largely individual-driven. The curriculum for college days is designed to cover the entire contents of an anesthesia textbook over two years.

College Days
Each college day starts with Grand Rounds. After Grand rounds, each college splits off and rotates through a series of educational experiences such as lectures, simulation exercises, oral and written board prep, workshops, cadaver labs, evidence-based medicine sessions, systems-based practice sessions, and journal club.
