Grand Rounds

For the past year, a CoM committee has been charged with assessing the Grand Rounds lecture series with respect to the mission of the College, its impact, and interest to the various audiences. Based on the committee’s recommendation to emphasize translational research, bridge clinical practice and research, and strengthen our engagements with the community, we made significant changes to the Grand Rounds lecture series for the upcoming year. FSU CoM is increasing the focus on community partnerships, and has begun collaborating with speakers from the Tallahassee community. While the College of Medicine is continuing to partner with nationally recognized speakers, it is our goal that this year, approximately half of the Grands Rounds lectures will be a combined talk given by an FSU faculty member in conjunction with a clinician. We hope you’ll join us for these exciting opportunities to hear what is happening in our research community at both the local and national level!

What is Grand Rounds?

Grand Rounds is a lecture series partnership between clinical and research faculty to offer presentations on both new research being conducted in the field, as well as practical clinical applications of that research. The lectures are held at 4:00pm and there is a small reception located in the atrium after each event.

Who may benefit from attending Grand Rounds?

Any faculty, staff, or student seeking to gain knowledge about up and coming research in the medical field and how it may impact their lives.

Where are these events held?

Grand Rounds are typically held within the MSB auditorium in the Thrasher building at the College of Medicine on Florida State’s main campus. Any changes in location will be reflected on the calendar located here.

Are these events open to individuals outside the College of Medicine?

Absolutely! Anyone interested in the topic is invited to attend. If you need additional information or have questions, including parking assistance or accessibility accommodations, you may reach out to our office for assistance.
