Combined Grand Rounds

For a few years, the Dean's Office has sponsored an Institutional Combined Grand Rounds Series. Sessions were initially scheduled four times a year, usually on the 3rd Wednesday of the designated months from 7:00 - 8:00 am ET.  The series was under the direction of Alan Kohrt, MD, Assistant Dean for Faculty Development. All faculty, residents, fellows, medical students, and PA Students are invited to participate. Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, these sessions were moved to a Zoom format.  Since Dr. Kohrt's retirement at the end of December 2021, we have shifted to a Faculty Development Series that started in May 2022.  Below are the sessions presented over the last several years -- some with links to recordings or slide decks presented during the session.
