CTSI Grand Rounds

Fall 2016

For the Fall semester of the 2016-2017 academic year, we have planned an exciting series of lectures about the research collaborations between URMC and the Canandaigua VA.

The series runs on Tuesdays from 12:00-1:00 pm. The location of the seminars is TBD.

CTSI will continue to offer live streaming of Grand Rounds, as well as the option to stream each event at a later date. Click on the seminar title to access the video. *Note: seminars are best viewed using Google Chrome 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.

Lunch is provided. Please bring your own beverage.
