 This event is an accredited group learning activity as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. 


Specialty Noon Rounds

Specialty noon rounds are held at noon every Friday in the 14C conference room, Jim Pattison Pavilion. The speaker presents to a group of MSIs and Internal Medicine / Off Service residents (varying years). The speaker is asked to give the talk at the level of a 1st year resident, on a topic that would be applicable to a Community General Internist. High yield topics applicable to a Royal College General Internal Medicine Examination are strongly recommended. Topics usually focus around a clinical vignette from which the discussion may center around diagnosis, physical examination, or management.  There are no noon rounds in August.
