This survey of emergency medicine residency program directors revealed wide variability in the structure and emphasis of morbidity and mortality (M&M) conferences, a key component of patient safety training for graduate medical education. Not all conferences supported a blame-free approach to errors or included follow-up to errors, suggesting that M&M conferences could be better designed to support safety culture.
