Didactic Lecture Series 2013-14

Didactic Lecture Series 2013-14

Fellows' Didactic Lecture and Journal Club

Aurbach Building - 450 Ray C. Hunt Drive - Fontaine
1st floor conference room, 2:00-3:00 pm unless otherwise specified


NOTE: This is a proposed schedule for fellow didactic lectures for the 2013-2014 academic year. Importantly, the full complement of important lectures is too much to cover fully each year. Thus, the didactic lecture curriculum is designed to cover each important topic at least once every two years; and the below list will include many lectures not covered in 2012-2013. The July lectures are "crash course" lectures; these will be covered every year and are geared primarily toward the starting fellows.
