Journal Club and Seminar Series
The Department of Laboratory Medicine organizes both a journal club and seminar series as well as other events to encourage the exchange of ideas and recent results. The weekly "journal club" meetings are organized to discuss recent articles of interest. Residents present the papers. There is a weekly seminar series with speakers invited both outside of and within Yale.
Research in Progress
In April/May the seminar program switches to a "Research in Progress" so that residents and postdoctoral fellows have the opportunity to present their latest data to the entire department for critical appraisal and feedback (also provides experience in public speaking).
The Department also holds a research retreat every other year that provides an exceptional opportunity for communication of ideas/results and development of community within the department. The retreat includes faculty presentations and a poster session. A topics/career luncheon is held where trainees interact with faculty members to discuss topics of mutual interest.
