Didactics

Every Friday our residents have a formal "school" time which they are required to attend. During this time they have a chance to:

  • Speak with both Dr. Fox and Dr. Bienstock about anything that has occurred recently
  • Review articles
  • Receive two formal lectures which are presented by faculty

Grand Rounds:

Grand Rounds are held every Thursday from September through July. While alternating between Hopkins speakers and guest speakers, the Grand Rounds experience is truly rewarding. Each resident will be expected to make a presentation during his or her final year in the program.
