 Conferences

​​​​​​​​​​We structure our didactic programs along a traditional model, albeit with one significant difference, that of an 'Integrated Curriculum' in which Core Lectures, MedStudy, MKSAP and Outpatient Clinic 'Article of the Week' all follow a common theme.​

Marshfield Clinic Internal Medicine Residency students participating in core curriculum lecturesCore Curriculum Lectures – 12:15 to 1 p.m.; Monday, Wednesday, Thursday

A blend of classic lectures on Internal Medicine topics mixed with Integrated Curriculum Conferences.

Learning parallels how you will practice: working in conjunction with radiology, surgical specialties, pharmacists and others in a multidisciplinary approach.


Morning Report – 11:45 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.; Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday

The mainstay remains case-based learning. This varies from a team presenting a case from medical service to a case from ambulatory clinic, or a subspecialty case.
