Academic Half Day

The Academic Half Day was implemented in July 2014 in response to resident feedback to improve the didactics in our program. Rather than noon conferences given by busy residents on inpatient ward services with limited faculty input, the Half Day is designed to be a concentrated block of protected academic time that occurs each Tuesday from 8:00 am – 12:30 pm at the Votaw Auditorium, ETSU Physicians & Associates, 325 N. State of Franklin Road. The presenters are faculty members, offering didactic as well as interactive case-based sessions on topics within the medicine subspecialties as well as interdisciplinary topics important for the training of a well-rounded internal medicine resident.

Residents are constantly challenged to apply this material not only in clinical duties, but also during the interactive case and question-based sessions following the lectures.

As a participant in the Academic Half Day, you will not only come away with thorough exposure to the subspecialties and a head-start toward board preparation, but you will also mingle with your colleagues on a weekly basis, encouraging better work relationships and friendships outside of the hospital. We have a rotating 18 month curriculum schedule.

The Academic Half Day will begin with the Department of Medicine Education Conference followed by Longitudinal Board Review session, Resident Core Lecture and monthly Resident Forums, Administrative update and Presentation Practice opportunities.
