The recurring faculty Grand Rounds lecture series is a time-honored and valued tradition in medical academic institutions. As an emerging multidisciplinary medical practice and as medical school professors, it is vitally important for the faculty of UCF COM/UCF Health to have an ongoing forum to learn and grow academically, educate one another and develop scholarship opportunities. This series allows our faculty participants to collaborate, keep up to date with latest clinical/evidence-based medicine and better serve our patients as a multidisciplinary practice.

Below you will find the current UCF Health Grand Rounds schedule and registration link to connect to the session held every 4th Friday of the month. Additionally video recordings are being offered for those who could not attend the live zoom session.
