Grand Rounds occur on Thursday mornings and are host to a variety of speakers who are national, regional and local experts.
Residents present a grand-round PowerPoint presentation reviewing interesting cases. Twice a month, residents are involved in OB/GYN M&M case reviews and on the fourth Thursday of the month, a joint OB/GYN M&M review is held at Overlook Medical Center.
