One half day per week throughout the four years will be dedicated to classroom education.  Formats such as lectures, discussion of assigned readings, case presentations, videos, skills practice, and live patient interviews will be employed.

Grand Rounds are held week on Wednesdays in the OLOL HVI Auditorium. These are a combination fo formal presentation of new research, literature review of a topic, or an interesting case with review of the literature. The schedule is always available online here. Note that Case Conferences are closed conferences and only clinicl faculty and staff should be in attendance.
