Clinical and Translational Science Institute Seminar Series

Fall 2014

For the Fall semester of the 2014-2015 academic year, we have planned an exciting series of lectures titled, "Women's Health."

All of the lectures will take place in the Helen Wood Hall Auditorium (1W-304), from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm. The series will begin on September 9, 2014.

CTSI will continue to offer live streaming of the seminar series, as well as the option to stream the seminar at a later date. Click on the seminar title to access the video. *Note: Seminars are best viewed using Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox.

The University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry designates this live educational activity for a maximum of 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM.  Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. CME credit will only be available for those that physically attend the series. No credit will be given for viewing the series on the web.
