Important Dates for Residents

Each year the Postgraduate Medical Education Office puts together many educational events for all levels of residency. Over the past number of years we've tried to keep the dates for each event to the same time of year while making sure not to schedule them on the same day of the week (e.g., not every Wednesday) or in conflict with the multifaith calendar. Your suggestions and feedback have been, and will continue to be, important to help us schedule these events as conveniently as possible for all. Please see below the tentative dates for the 2017-18 PGME Academic Events (please disregard any previous listings). Please be reminded that these dates are always a work in progress and are subject to change, so we encourage you to check back regularly for changes and updates.
