Rounds and Conferences
Family-Centered Rounds conducted at the bedside, include family members, residents, medical students, nursing staff, and a pediatric hospitalist. These rounds foster team work, enhance patient and staff satisfaction, and have been proven to improve clinical outcomes. Through this rounding experience, evidence-based education takes place for all members of the healthcare team.
On Radiology Rounds, Pediatric Radiologists review the imaging studies performed over the last 24 hours. This educational experience enhances residents’ understanding of the rationale behind ordering various radiologic studies, and teaches residents the essentials of interpretation of radiographs in pediatric patients.
Residents present interesting cases from the Inpatient Unit and PICU. This educational conference is led by senior residents, under faculty supervision. Interns and medical students learn how pediatricians work through the process of history taking and physical examination, building a differential diagnosis, selecting appropriate tests and procedures, and finally management of various cases. Through this process, residents build strong clinical foundations.
Pediatric Grand Rounds
Weekly Grand Rounds Conferences present cutting edge research and medical knowledge, the latest clinical practice guidelines, as well as interesting cases. Speakers include national, regional, and local experts.
Core Curriculum Conference
The core curriculum is presented weekly as a Tuesday morning block session following Pediatric Grand Rounds. High quality, interactive teaching sessions are delivered by both NYU Winthrop faculty and visiting professors on a broad range of core topics, including general pediatrics, pediatric subspecialties, personal professional development, communication, evidence-based medicine, health systems, population health, quality improvement, and more.
Pediatric Board Review
Interactive board review sessions are conducted weekly by the Pediatric Chief Residents.
Residents learn how to interpret and critically appraise the current literature.
Patient Safety and Medical Errors
Through series of lectures and workshops, we have successfully implemented this essential curriculum. Residents become comfortable dealing with disclosure of medical errors and near miss events, actively participating in NYU Winthrop’s efforts in providing “best practice” care to our patients.
Neonatal-Obstetrics Joint Conference
This Morbidity and Mortality joint conference, that includes Obstetricians and Neonatologists, allows both specialties to discuss and learn from interesting and often difficult cases.
Residents select a case for discussion that involves multiple subspecialties. This provides an opportunity for a variety of subspecialties to come together for an engaging discussion regarding the management of complex patients.
NYU Winthrop’s Associate Dean of Undergraduate Medical Education, Dr. Steven Shelov, meets with the residents for an interactive discussion of an interesting case/clinical topic.
