Center for Medical Ethics & Health Policy Grand Rounds


Grand rounds are held at Houston Methodist Hospital and Baylor St. Luke's Medical Center for healthcare professionals, but are open to anyone interested in attending. The center uses grand rounds 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.
