Mortality & Morbidity

Morbidity and Mortality conferences are varied based on topic and held weekly.  For some of the curriculum, presentations are based on a given service. Senior residents from a given service are assigned to present a patient and approximately three complications, previously determined to be educationally beneficial.  This is a non-punitive conference designed to improve patient care and provider judgment and behavior by discussing these experiences.  This supportive forum allows participants reflect on the entire patient care experience and evaluate it objectively.

Other conferences in this curriculum include Multi-departmental M&M and Patient Quality, Safety, and Cost M&M.
