Grand Rounds at The University of Tulsa: Health topics with real-life application

All TU faculty, staff and students are invited to Oxley College of Health Sciences for grand rounds. Each grand rounds is held from 12:10 to 12:50 p.m. in Oxley Health Science Facility room 411.

The grand rounds concept originated in physician training. Under this model, students listen while expert physicians and professors share the latest medical knowledge and/or discuss patients’ clinical cases.

At the College of Health Sciences, we have drawn inspiration from this tradition to create a learning opportunity for everyone who is interested in contemporary health and health care. Each of our grand rounds addresses topics that have real-life application.

These are not 40-minute lectures. Instead, our guest speakers present ideas and invite participants to weigh in with their thoughts and questions.

We invite you to participate in our discussion-oriented grand rounds. Every member of the University of Tulsa community is welcome to attend – students, faculty and staff. We also welcome attendees from outside of TU.

Grand Rounds at TU is a great way to round out your knowledge and your week. We hope to see you there!
