Grand Rounds

What is Public Health Grand Rounds?

Grand Rounds provides socialization opportunities to our students to the broader profession of public health through engagement in substantive programs on a wide range of topics that reflect the breadth of public health. Students will be able to interact with researchers and practitioners from other settings and universities around the world. Opportunities include interdisciplinary approaches to complex public health problems with lectures, symposia, and conferences outside of the classroom.
