Grand Rounds

IMPORTANT NOTICE March 10, 2020: 

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 and M hour, please remember to enter the 6 letter code provided, so that we can continue to track attendance.

Until further notice we will allow only all the Surgery residents and the attending surgeons whose cases are being presented into the Gross Conference Room. Everyone else should attend remotely by logging in from 7 am to 8 am.

Most of the Grand Rounds lectures (2013 - present) are recorded and available online on the Jefferson Digital Commons: View Recorded Lectures
