Medical Students Lead Grand Rounds

This fall marked the start of Medical Student Grand Rounds, a monthly series of talks by Geisel School of Medicine students for an audience of their peers and interested medical faculty. Organized by Geisel’s Student Government, the presentations showcase the breadth of student knowledge, passions, and research at the institution.

Across academic medical centers, grand rounds remain an important educational activity for doctors to share medical knowledge in a formal presentation. Many healthcare professionals rely on grand rounds to stay up to date in important, evolving, or nascent areas that may be outside of their core practice.
