• Morning report can function as an instructive teaching conference capable of providing a broad coverage of topics in internal medicine. A format at our institution that utilizes brief case presentations by on-call interns, followed by an in-depth discussion of key points among representative subspecialty staff, provided coverage of 85.6% of material present in three major medical references. An internal monitoring system used to guide case selection assures a broader coverage of topics. In addition, preconference preparation to delineate major teaching points, timely follow-up of previously discussed cases, and the generation of a pertinent bibliography are significant features of a format for morning report that provides a conference for exposing house staff to a wide variety of internal medicine problems.
