Attendance at Grand Rounds, Journal Club and Clinical Case Conferences is considered mandatory. If you are rotating at our satellite locations (DHMC, VAMC, CHC), they are teleconferenced in the assigned conference room location(s). You will be expected to sign in. DHMC, VAMC, and CHC have conferences at their hospitals Tuesday through Friday mornings that residents are expected to attend.
The didactic conferences are integrated and inclusive. On Monday mornings the O.R. schedule starts an hour later at all institutions so that residents can attend Grand Rounds. Grand Rounds are teleconferenced to Denver Health Medical Center and the VA Medical Center.
The Department of Anesthesiology has an in-house library in the Academic Office Building (AO-1). In addition, Health Sciences Library is located on the Anschutz Medical Campus.
Simulation training is integrated throughout the residents' curriculum in conjunction with the Center for Advancing Professional Excellence (CAPE).
