Introduction to PM&R Lecture Series
Every July and August a series of Introduction to PM&R lectures are given to the 2nd year residents.
PM&R Core Didactic Lecture Series
These lectures are given twice weekly and cover the PM&R core curriculum. Speakers include faculty and allied health professionals. Faculty includes basic science faculty and faculty outside the PM&R department. (Residents do not give lectures.) The main topic headings are as follows: adaptive equipment, brain injury, business mgmt., cardiopulmonary, end of life care, geriatrics, musculoskeletal, neuromuscular/emg, occupational medicine, P&O/amputee management, pain, performance improvement, rheumatology, SCI, stroke, therapeutics, vocational rehabilitation, wound and burn care. A new emphasis has been placed on including more basic science content, relevant to PM&R, such as the anatomy and physiology, and pathophysiology of the cardiovascular, pulmonary and nervous system. This lecture series repeats approximately every two years. Lectures are given 2x per week on Thursday and Friday mornings.
Neuromuscular Case Conference
This is a weekly clinical conference given in conjunction with neurology. This conference is case-based and covers anatomy, pathophysiology, electrodiagnostic tests and clinical management. A neuropathologist is present to review muscle biopsies.
Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago's Orthotics and Prosthetics Course
Every resident attends this five day course at RIC. They typically attend in their third year.
Regional Pediatric Rehabilitation Symposium
This is a day long seminar at CCHMC that includes lectures covering all the major pediatric rehabilitation topics. The speakers are local and regional pediatric physiatrists. PM&R residents attend from around the region. It is presented every other spring and PM&R resident attendance is mandatory.
Pediatric Rehabilitation Medicine Lecture Series
This is a series of lectures that cover a wide variety of topics related to pediatric rehabilitation. The lectures will be given by faculty and allied health professionals. The residents rotating at Children's will be required to attend. The lectures will be 2x/month on Monday mornings.
Grand Rounds is offered weekly September through June and is presented by faculty at the University of Cincinnati, regional allied health professionals and typically at least three invited national speakers per year. Upper level residents are also asked to give one Grand Rounds per year.
Each year the department obtains a cadaver for resident study. There are two residents and one faculty member assigned to each particular anatomy region. The residents have the option of doing the dissection themselves or having it prosected. The sections are divided as follows: shoulder, arm/forearm, wrist/hand, neck/back, buttock/post. thigh, ant.thigh/knee, leg/ankle/foot. On Thursday mornings all the residents and interested faculty members meet to go over the dissection. One of the two assigned residents for the session discusses the basic anatomy and kinesiology. The other resident reviews the clinical scenarios and special physical exam testing for the section. The faculty member adds additional information and then talks about the clinical significance of what has been discussed.
EMG Lecture Series
Dr. Goddard, who is board-certified in electrodiagnostic studies, gives a series of one on one lectures to the third year residents during their EMG months.
Morbidity and Mortality Conference
This conference is presented quarterly by the faculty and is intended to discuss complications or unexpected outcomes. Risk management, evidence based medicine and performance improvement topics are covered as part of the discussion.
Web-Based Research Modules
These are 12 web-based video modules produced by the Clinical Research Program at CCHMC that residents are required to view during their consult months during their PGY2 year. The 12 modules cover the spectrum of fundamental research design including such topics as: developing a research proposal, introduction to statistics, study design, outcomes research, etc.
