Conferences & Didactic Sessions

Morbidity and Mortality Conference

Thursday is the academic day for the entire Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Columbia University Medical Center. The day begins with the Morbidity and Mortality (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 faculty and other members of the department. The M&M Conference is held on Monday mornings at Weill-Cornell Medical College.

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. Grand Rounds are held on Monday afternoons at Weill-Cornell Medical College.

Fellow Lecture Series

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

Tumor Board

Tumor Board is a fellow-run review and discussion of cases from the previous week. During Tumor Board, fellows and faculty discuss the management and future management of similar cases.

Journal Club

A Gynecologic Oncology Journal Club is held every other month with the presentation of an interesting paper by a fellow and a critical discussion and review of the topic led by a faculty member.
