Just a reminder for PGY-1 KTI residents on FM service regarding Wednesday Resident Teaching rounds - please send me the lecture after your presentation each week. I will be sending a reminder to whomever is presenting. These will go under the section: https://www.qfmblog.com/teaching as available resources to you (password is located in your dfm e-mail).

For QBOL/BQ/PK - I still highly encourage you to send your own teaching topics as they are presented. I will send periodic requests to your chiefs asking about these.

The resident driven elective database was reinitiated by the outgoing 2016 site chiefs. It is contributed by residents voluntarily across all training sites in an attempt to provide some insight into the potential elective experiences for PGY-2 planning.
