Curricular Enhancement Communities (CECs) were created to enhance curriculum in areas that, regardless of career interest, all residents should be well-versed.  Our four CECs are:

  • Advocacy
  • Research and Quality Improvement
  • Scholarship
  • Global Health and Underserved Populations

CEC sessions are held each month, and residents are invited to participate in any and all sessions.  Times of sessions vary; some are held during work hours and others in the evenings.  And just what do we do in our CEC sessions?  We’re glad you asked!  Our 2018-2019 sessions included:
