Department of Internal Medicine Grand Rounds take place each Thursday at noon in the Pauly Auditorium (College of Public Health, Room G19).  DOIM Grand Rounds are recorded, with the links to each presentation below


Until further notice, all future Grand Rounds will be virtual, but you may attend in person as long as you practice social distancing and stay at least 6 feet from one another. Otherwise, please use the link view virtually. In order to view the presentation, it is important that you CUT and PASTE the link into your Google Chrome (not internet explorer) and do not click on it. You will be given CE credits as long as you submit the code by midnight of the same day that the lecture was presented, as you have been doing in the past. No credit will be given for viewing the presentation after the day of the actual presentation. The only change is that you are now allowed to view virtually and get credit.
