Curriculum Innovation

The Curriculum Innovation committee is designed to allow for residents and interns to actively shape their educational experience while at UF. This committee meets on an every other month basis to go over new ideas and initiatives to improve resident education. These include new formats for morning report/noon conference, development of new elective rotations, and establishment of an educational curriculum for the VA ICU and Cardiac ICU rotations.

Some initiatives brought forward by the curriculum innovation committee:

Electives Created

  • Sleep medicine
  • Outpatient Palliative care
  • Ultrasound

Changes to educational conferences

  • Morning report Daily Dose
  • Subspecialty morning report series
  • MICU morning report
  • Proceduralist morning report series
  • Ambulatory morning report series

CCU/VA ICU Core Curriculum

  • Established initially for off service rotators (ER and Family medicine), the proposed core curriculum will establish lectures in a chalk talk or TED talk format on high yield topics in each given area of cardiac or pulmonary critical care medicine
  • This generated content will come directly from experts in the field and is closely coordinated between the curriculum committee and the chief fellows of pulmonary and cardiology
  • Once completed these will serve as a database for residents/fellows to provide brief lectures on high yield topics to guide education while on these services
