Didactic sessions for the residents are typically offered four mornings per week from 730-830am.  The content based topics follow a 2-year planned curriculum that repeats such that each resident experiences the full didactic cycle twice.  The typical 2-year curriculum can be seen below.  Also, to view the full ‘15-’16 Academic Year’s didactic schedule, click here.
