Family Medicine Grand Rounds

Family Medicine Grand Rounds is a forum to share and discuss scholarly and practical work pertaining to family medicine and of interest to individuals working within a family medicine environment. The primary purpose of these Grand Rounds is to bring together family medicine professionals to hear and discuss thought-provoking presentations on topics of importance to family medicine and to primary health care broadly. Family Medicine Grand Rounds are held approximately four times annually.

Rounds are open to family medicine faculty, residents, preceptors, medical students, researchers, community physicians, medical students, residents from other medical specialty areas and allied health professionals working with family physicians.
