Grand Rounds

The UC Merced Grand Rounds Program commenced in April 2021 and is sponsored by the Office of Medical Education and UC Merced. This monthly series of interactive education sessions focuses on topics of interest to the San Joaquin Valley in clinical, community, and translational medicine, health sciences, public health and health systems. It is open to medical, nursing and allied health practitioners, students, and health system administrators from the Central Valley as well as UC Merced faculty, staff and students. We look forward to working with local, regional and national health, healthcare and health system experts in providing timely updates on a diversity of topics that directly impact health and health care in the San Joaquin Valley. Grand Rounds is presented monthly from September – May at 5PM on the second Tuesday of each month. Currently, all programming through May 2022 will be held via Zoom.
