In designing a new conference, many of the ideas of Pupa and Carpenter1 were applied.Given the outpatient clinic responsibilities of the bulk of the attending staff, the Chief Medical Resident was put in charge as discussion leader. During the ensuing four months, he developed a style with the following emphases: (1) preconference selection of one or two cases to facilitate the direction of an appropriately prepared discussion; (2) participation of house staff in the discussion by Socratic questioning, with special attention not to embarrass any individual; (3) supply References 1.
