Turning good ideas into educational reality is a core value of the Providence Portland Residency. Recent innovations include: a "procedures rotation", a comprehensive 360 degree review process, and an on-line curriculum for learning EKGs and CXR. From using simulations as part of intern orientation to resident-designed electronic transitions of care, residents and faculty work together to continuously evolve the curriculum and improve patient care.
Learning about change allows the residency to continually improve. Learning how to facilitate change gives the residents important skills they will take out into their careers.
