CA-1/CA-2/CA-3 Lecture Series

From August through June, the lecture series for all residents CA-1, CA-2 and CA-3, includes weekly morning lectures, monthly Morbidity and Mortality Conference, Grand Rounds, a quarterly Journal Club, and daily "Keywords"  or Problem-based Learning Discussion. Our lecture series is reviewed and modified by the residents and program director each year to address knowledge gaps and the ABA Content Outline.

Weekly CA-1 Lectures - cover a broad range of topics. These lectures are based on the Pass Machine program, and are prepared by the residents with discussion guided by a faculty moderator. The lectures improve resident medical knowledge.

Advanced Lecture Series for CA-2 and CA-3 Residents – focuses on advanced Anesthesiology topics. These lectures are presented by faculty.

Practiced Based Learning & Discussion Sessions - held five to six times per year.  These sessions often focus on subspecialties of Anesthesiology.

Morbidity and Mortality lectures – held monthly to review and discuss interesting and informative cases seen by attendings and residents. This is a forum for discussing important topics such as patient safety and quality improvement.

Journal Club - review pertinent journal articles that stimulate research and critical discussion of topics. It also provides residents with a guide on how to critically evaluate medical literature. These meetings are held once a quarter.

Grand Rounds - a monthly lecture series for the entire Department of Anesthesiology including residents, faculty and CRNAs. These formal lectures will be given by a wide range of presenters, including residents and visiting professors.

Keywords - a short 15-minute session at the start of each day.  Residents review important topics in their anesthesiology practice.  These keywords are topics that are taken from ABA examinations, as well as suggested resident topics. These sessions help to improve medical knowledge and prepare residents for their in-training and board exams. Topics are preented by residents with a faculty moderator present.

Simulation Sessions - CA-1 residents will complete four OSCE simulations at the Wayne State University School of Medicine campus and at least one simulation here in the SJMO Simulation Lab within the first few months of training.  CA-2 and CA-3 residents will have a minimum of one simulation session each year.

Board Review - These faculty-run sessions aim to prepare residents for the ABA BASIC Exam, Advanced Exam, and Applied Exam (Oral Board & OSCE). These board review sessions include Mock Oral Board preparation beginning in CA-1 Year.
