Medical Education Rounds

Sharing new developments

If you’re a medical educator, you likely find it difficult to take time out of your busy schedule to attend conferences and seminars. But in a field that’s constantly evolving, it’s important to stay on top of the latest innovations in education theory and practice.

The Rounds are offered monthly in term.
