Program Education Activities
Didactics & Education - The formal didactic lecture series is conducted on Wednesday afternoons for two hours. The lecture series follows a 12-month rotation schedule allowing residents to hear topics three times during their residency.
Additionally, there is protected time for both a resident driven Board Review Series, which takes place on Monday mornings, as well as a Board Review session, led by the Program Director on Friday mornings.
Thursday afternoons consist of an MSK Ultrasound and Anatomy course that revolves on a 6-month cycle, giving the resident exposure to a particular joint and spine twice per year. In 3-to-4-week blocks, the course focuses on the following, weekly: gross anatomy, clinical pathology and physical exam, musculoskeletal ultrasound and finally, injection/procedural techniques using ultrasound and fluoroscopic guidance. The latter is performed on cadaveric specimens in University of Toledo’s newly built simulation center (below).
