We offer high quality didactic sessions over the lunch hour, both in person and virtually. These didactic sessions include morbidity and mortality conferences, journal clubs, and faculty-led presentations. Once per month, we have an afternoon workshop session, focused on more hands-on learning, which includes sports medicine procedures, POCUS, women’s health procedures and more. Twice per week, we hold morning report–resident led, case-based presentations.
Twice per month Halifax Health Medical Center’s Department of Continuing Education has a 60 minute Grand Rounds presentation of timely medical topics, pertinent to primary care. Residents and faculty participate in these presentations.
