Didactics consist of a Noon Conference and Family Medicine Didactics Education. Noon conference takes place on Tuesday Noon – 1 p.m. Family Medicine didactics take place on Wednesday afternoons from 11:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.

This time for these required educational experiences is protected for each resident, which means the resident’s clinical responsibilities are handed over to his/her attending to allow for optimal learning without interruption. The group also uses this time to teach core and visiting medical students.
