Conferences & Didactics

A number of conferences are offered and fellow participation is viewed as an important part of the training experience. Among them is the Combined Clinical Chest Conference, one of the best-attended subspecialty multidisciplinary conferences at Jefferson. Each week, pulmonary/critical care fellows present clinical cases in a CPC type format. Cases are then discussed and often debated by members of the Department of Radiology, Pathology, Surgery and the Division of Pulmonary Medicine. The following is an example of the weekly conference schedule.
