Center for Medical Ethics and Health Policy

Grand Rounds

Grand rounds are held at Houston Methodist Hospital for their healthcare professionals, but are open to anyone interested in attending. The center uses grand rounds as an opportunity to address and keep physicians, nurses, physician assistants, and related professionals abreast of ever changing topics within the field. Continuing medical education credit is offered to a variety of healthcare professionals. This enables our healthcare professionals to keep current and maintain their knowledge of cutting-edge research, techniques and innovations through lectures, workshops and seminars featuring local, national, and internationally renowned speakers.
