Conferences and Training

Overlook Family Medicine Residency conferences and meetings are held daily at lunchtime with an additional morning conference on Thursdays. Twice-monthly block conferences (full mornings through lunchtime) are also held, covering core family medicine clinical topics.

The conference line-up includes:

  • Conferences with patient participants; including monthly adult psychiatry conferences
  • Twice-monthly OB/GYN conferences
  • Monthly evidence-based medicine, journal club and preventive medicine conferences
  • Monthly workshops in gynecologic procedures, casting and splinting, suturing and other office-based procedures, using state-of-the-art training models
  • Monthly health systems management (practice management) conferences
  • Monthly osteopathic manipulative therapy (OMT) workshops
  • Monthly musculo-skeletal lecture series
  • Monthly pediatric case conferences

Other lunchtime activities include the Balint Group; resident, faculty and office management meetings; and other learning and supportive activities.

Patient Turnover

Family Medicine faculty and residents meet each weekday morning to discuss daily progress of inpatients, exchange information and develop consensus on the clinical care of each inpatient.

Evidence-Based Medicine (EBM)

EBM training begins in the first year, with one-on-one education in search strategies on evidence-based websites; preparation for and presentation at the program's monthly EBM conference; and ongoing involvement in raising and answering clinical questions using EBM resources during precepting, patient turnover and the monthly conference.

Research is an important element of medical education. Each resident is required to develop a scholarly project or participate with other residents and faculty in ongoing projects during their training. Project development and progress is presented to colleagues at annual conferences. Attendance at EBM-related conferences and other teaching programs acquaints residents with the EBM process and faculty mentorship is provided. Help with data collection, analysis and Institutional Review Board (IRB) applications are available.

Residents and faculty may present their work at the annual Atlantic Health System Research Day, a juried competition. Should your research be accepted for presentation at a regional or national conference, the residency program will fund your travel.

Global Health

Global health activities are highly valued by the residency program. Through a global health experience (arranged either by the resident or chosen from a list of pre-established opportunities), the resident has an opportunity to learn about geographically distinct illnesses, the diagnosis and management of illness in culturally diverse settings, and the relationship of socioeconomic factors to health and health care delivery. The site and experience must be pre-approved by the program director; upon completion of the rotation the resident presents a review of their experience. All global health experiences are funded by the Benjamin H. Josephson, MD Fund, a foundation established to honor a founder of the residency, through the Department of Family Medicine.
