Grand Rounds

Hybrid Format

M & M will take place in the Gross Conference Room at 7 am every Thursday followed by Grand Rounds. We will livestream the presentations as we do every week, so that individuals may watch remotely. The link to the livestream URL will continue to be sent out every Wednesday from John Davis. During the M & M hour, please remember to enter the 6 letter code provided, so that we can continue to track attendance.

Currently, a maximum of 72 people are permitted to attend in Foerderer Auditorium - masks on, maintain social distancing, no eating or drinking. Others may attend via Zoom.
