Our residency teaching conferences are from noon to 1pm Monday – Friday. We chose this time so that you could have your lunch (provided by Centegra Health System) and learn at the same time. Synopsis of the conferences will be available after each session. Normally they will be posted the next day in our residency evaluations system: MyEvaluations.com
