Grand Rounds

Grand Rounds

Overall Goals/Objectives

The Surgical Grand Rounds Series is designed to bring new developments in various fields of surgery to the attention of faculty, house staff and other medical personnel.  Some of the lectures will also review principles of management, which have been established for many years.  A wide variety of topics are planned that address both clinical and non-clinical issues.  The non-clinical lectures will focus on areas that are important in providing patient care but may not have been taught in medical schools consistently over the past decades.  Nonetheless, all issues are important to learn in order to successfully practice General Surgery or a surgical subspecialty.  The entire surgical arena will be covered.

At the end of these activities, participants should be able to:

  • become aware of evidence-based practices of the best  surgical techniques
  • be introduced to new technology, research and  procedures in the treatment of surgical patients
