Grand rounds are an integral component of medical education, consisting of presenting new innovations in medicine to an audience of doctors, residents and medical students. Presentations are given by faculty members from each of our divisions as well as invited guest speakers from across the nation. Grand rounds attendees qualify for CME credit.

They are held every Friday at noon except the second Friday of every month, September through June.
