Conferences & Didactic Sessions

Morbidity and Mortality Conference

Thursday is the academic day for the entire Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at CUMC. The day begins with the Morbidity and Mortality Conference (M&M) conference, in which interesting cases from each service are presented by members of the house staff and are followed by lively and thoughtful discussion from the faculty and other members of the department.

Grand Rounds

Weekly Grand Rounds follow the M&M Conference and feature presentations from within our faculty, as well as many distinguished visiting guest speakers. Each first-year fellow is also required to give one Grand Rounds presentation each year, and these talks are often the highlight of the morning session. Second- year fellows are required to present the Family Planning division statistics each year.

Fellow Lecture Series

A core Fellow Lecture Series supplements the experience gained on clinical rotations to round out the comprehensive post-graduate curriculum.

Journal Club

A Family Planning Journal Club is held monthly with the presentation of an interesting paper by a resident and attended by Family Planning faculty and fellows.

Research Meeting

Research meetings are held, during which our faculty and fellows discuss ongoing research projects within the Division.


Fellows are welcome to attend seminars hosted by the School of Public Health Department of Population and Family Health.
