The Bryn Mawr Podiatric Residency program uses several educational methods.
The Bryn Mawr Podiatric Residency experience contains formal lecture instruction, holding the information backgrounds and concepts consistent with the goals of the residency and the rotational experience acquired during the resident's performance. The volume of lecture material required is so great that ideal time matching with the resident's practical experience is difficult to schedule. However, the residents are expected to attend the “Rooftop” lecture series, given every Tuesday, as frequently as possible, and attendance is monitored.
The lecture faculty consists of active attendings of the Main Line Health System as well as guest lecturers.
Morning Patient Rounds
Attendees are the senior resident, second and first year residents on service, as well as the attending Physician, when available, for discussion of patient conditions and treatment courses.
Weekly conferences will be held for the purpose of furthering the educational activities of the residents. These will be attended by one of the podiatric attendings and/or online lecturer as well as the residents on service. Topics will be chosen weekly that are pertinent to the current activities of the residents, either surgical or medical.
The Journal Club is intended to provide the resident with current knowledge of important developmental articles written in recognized journals. The content of each article is to be consistent with the aims and purposes of the podiatric surgeon's care. The Journal Club will be held bi-monthly and all residents participate. Each resident should read the article provided before the Journal Club meets. Each session is moderated by the Director or a member of the attending podiatric staff.
Workshops shall consist of Cadaveric laboratory instruction in the practical application of operative techniques.
All residents are provided with funds for registration to an applicable program of post-graduate education which is CME accredited. Seminars must be fully attended by the resident. Upon return to the hospital, the resident will give a review of the content provided during the seminar or symposium.
It is well recognized that teaching itself is a learning experience. Residents are encouraged to teach to the level of their development in knowledge and skill, especially PGY 3 residents, who are available to the PGY 1, PGY II residents during the ongoing course of the program. Additionally, the PGY I residents participate actively in teaching students/externs who are visiting the hospital as part of an approved program.
