Grand Rounds

The Department of Surgery at the UF College of Medicine Jacksonville hosts bimonthly grand rounds, which is a one-hour educational event that grants one Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit. Grand rounds are co-directed by Erin M. Mobley, PhD, MPH and Ruchir Puri, MBBS, MS, FACS with the support of Ms. Tamekia Reese.

Topics of discussion include clinical, technical, historical, educational, research, and faculty development areas related to surgery and surgical subspecialties. Grand rounds occur on the downtown campus at UF Health in Jacksonville with livestream options to the north and east UF Health campuses also in Jacksonville. Additionally, attendees who cannot attend in-person have the option to attend virtually using videoconference technology, if needed. CME credit is only available for live attendees. All Department of Surgery faculty, fellows, and residents are active participants and the speakers include faculty, senior residents and fellows, as well as eminent visiting professors from across the country.

Historic recordings and additional resources are available on the F-drive (Surgery > Surgery Grand Rounds). You may also reach out to Tamekia Reese with any questions.
