The Department of Family and Community Medicine offers a rich conference program that is held throughout the year. Grand Rounds takes place each Wednesday morning. A variety of local and nationally recognized experts, Jefferson faculty, and third year residents, contribute to this conferences. Third year residents present topics of their choice during Grand Rounds.
An essential component of Grand Rounds is the monthly Morbidity and Mortality conference. Morbidity and Mortality conferences supply one of the great opportunities for residents to synthesize evidence-based literature and apply it to a patient or patients cared for in the hospital. Residents present mortalities and significant morbidities from their Hospital Service block.
