The Department of Surgery supports the continuing education of our faculty, residents, students, staff, and guests with the presentation of Grand Rounds. Grand Rounds are held year-round every Wednesday on a weekly basis. The purpose is to present clinical problems, updates on new and innovative developments in research and technology, and address other related issues that our current and future surgeons face. Grand Rounds are an essential component of medical education, teaching new information and enhancing clinical reasoning skills.
