The Respiratory Medicine Subspecialty Education Program's Academic Half Day is protected time for formal teaching activities. This Half Day always happens at St. Boniface. Residents are expected to be present and are exempt from all other activities during this half day, which begins formally on September 1 and runs through to June 30 of the following year. During the summer months (July and August) introductory teaching sessions are organized and the chest conference is continued (see item 4 below). During July and August, trainees are encouraged to attend Department of Medicine lecture series on medical emergencies.
