Back to Bedside Project

Creighton is one of 30 Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) programs to receive grant funding for the Back to Bedside project, which is a residentled initiative to empower medical residents and fellows to create innovative strategies for improving patient care and their general well-being.

This project also enhances wellness for physician care teams.

Academic Half Days

Our resident-led Education Committee has implemented Academic Half Days as a project: “A New Dawn in the Internal Medicine Education Curriculum—A project by the residents, with the residents, for the residents.” The transition to this methodology eliminated the need for daily didactic lectures and gives residents protected learning time.

Our Academic Half Day is Wednesday afternoons following grand rounds. Academic Half Day curriculum includes our Core Curriculum, chief-resident-led small group sessions, interactive sessions with faculty, Journal Club, research, QI/PS and health care.
