Duke Medicine Learning, Education, and Discussion Series

Duke Medicine LEADS

In October 2020, the Department of Medicine launched a new continuing medical education series for our faculty and trainees.

The Duke Medicine Learning, Education, and Discussion Series (LEADS) will take place each Tuesday at 12 p.m.

Together with Medicine Grand Rounds, Duke Medicine LEADS will keep our knowledge current and our skills sharp while strengthening our commitment to being a values-driven, data-driven, and anti-racist department.

Background

Chetan Patel, MD, vice chair for clinical affairs, is activity director for Duke Medicine LEADS.

"We live in a rapidly changing world, and there are many forces pushing and pulling the delivery of health care in the United States. New medical knowledge is broadly available through multiple platforms; value-based care and other payment models are creating practice changes; wearable devices and other technologies are connecting us to our patients in unprecedented ways; and there is a need for a thorough examination of racism and systemic causes of health disparities."

Duke Medicine LEADS will help fill gaps in knowledge as well as cultivate the inspiration that comes from interacting with our community of faculty and trainees.

Dr. Patel and a planning committee will tap the vast knowledge within the department to invite faculty and trainees to be presenters and discussion facilitators. See below to learn more.

Rotating themes

The series will include four rotating themes, guided by teams of faculty and our chief residents:

  • Health Equities and Disparities in Medicine, for ongoing dialogue about diversity, equity, and inclusion — Laura Svetkey and Kim Evans (senior leads), Julius Wilder (faculty lead), and Sara Coles (chief resident).
  • Diagnostic Reasoning and Discussions, a case-based discussion — Aimee Zaas and Eileen Maziarz (senior leads), Alex Horne (faculty lead), and Lonnie Sullivan (chief resident).
  • Quality and Systems-based Approaches in Medicine, explorations of quality, process improvement, and value-based care — Chet Patel (senior lead), and Ryan Duffy (chief resident).
  • Topic-based Clinical Updates, to review internal medicine guidelines and explore new therapies — Anne Phelps (senior lead), David Leverenz (faculty leads), and Nathaniel Harris (chief resident).

Credits

Category 1: Duke University Health System Department of Clinical Education and Professional Development designates this activity for a maximum of 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Attendance and CME credit is tracked online by Duke Continuing Medical Education.

How to participate

Duke Medicine LEADS sessions will take place in Zoom. Instructions for connecting will be included in a weekly email message sent to all faculty and trainees in the Department of Medicine.
