Fellow’s Case Conference
Presented by 1st year fellows, one Tuesday per month. You are to present an interesting case, and teaching points, guidelines, or evidence-based content. The first two months you will be supervised by the 2nd year fellows so that they can help you with the format and content. In general you should review:
- Case presentation
- Imaging and Results
- Interesting learning points, Controversial decisions, New studies, Guidelines
Presented by the fellow on Pulmonary Consults. You will review, usually two recent journal articles. Typically it is nice if the topics complement each other. The resident(s) on the consult service should be participating in Journal Club with you. The articles are sent out to the faculty and fellows approximately 1 week in advance. You will give a short over view of the articles and be well versed on the article for discussion and questions. This is often also attended by pharmacy, and advanced practice providers to facilitate a well-rounded multi-disciplinary discussion.
M & M Conference
You should complete an M & M yearly. This will occur during one of the Tuesday Conferences. This should be done with an attending and is expected to be a much more detailed review of the case, decision making, and patient outcome and complications. Guest speaker, consultant, pathologist input is welcome!
ICC RT Lectures
Each year the fellows give lectures on pulmonary topics to the respiratory therapy students at ICC (Illinois Central College). This is a nice opportunity to share our knowledge and expertise with other members of the healthcare community and is always well received by the students.
