Didactic teaching occurs in a variety of settings including:


  • Weekly Grand Rounds
  • Clinical-Pathological Conference (CPC)
  • Conferences (Including subspecialty)
  • Firm Conferences
  • Journal Clubs
  • Core Curriculum Conferences
  • Ambulatory Care Conferences
  • Morbidity and Mortality Conferences


Senior residents have the opportunity to participate in grand rounds, core conferences, firm conference, and clinical-pathologic conference. There are also opportunities to participate in reviews of manuscripts for The Washington Manual of Medical Therapeutics, and its new companion, The Washington Manual of Ambulatory Therapeutics. In addition, residents are invited to write chapters in the 11 book Washington University Subspecialty Series and the Intern Survival Guide.


Scholarship is an important part of Internal Medicine training. Residents are encouraged to submit abstracts to regional and national meetings and financial support is available for these opportunities. We also encourage our residents to participate in research projects with the subspecialty divisions and the Division of General Medical Sciences. We are particularly proud of the unique scholarly opportunities we have created for our residents.


We believe these opportunities, coupled with our exceptionally rich learning environment, superb house officers and medical students, and internationally renowned faculty; make our residents highly competitive for the most desirable subspecialty fellowships.
