In October 2020, the Department of Medicine will launch 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.
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.
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 Stephanie Garbarino (chief resident).
- Diagnostic Reasoning and Discussions, a case-based discussion — Aimee Zaas (senior lead), Eileen Maziarz (faculty lead), and Matt Labriola (chief resident).
- Quality and Systems-based Approaches in Medicine, explorations of quality, process improvement, and value-based care — Chet Patel (senior lead), Darsh Kothari (faculty lead), and Govind Krishnan (chief resident).
- Topic-based Clinical Updates, to review internal medicine guidelines and explore new therapies — Anne Phelps (senior lead), David Leverenz and Stephen Bergin (faculty leads), and Hannah Dzimitrowicz (chief resident).
Duke Medicine LEADS will qualify for continuing medical education credits beginning in January 2021.
