The UC San Diego Division of Geriatrics, Gerontology, and Palliative Care hosts a monthly Grand Rounds. This series takes place every first Tuesday of the month from 12:00 - 1:00 pm.

GOAL: To provide needs-based education for physicians and health care providers to improve knowledge, competence, and performance and enable the optimum provision of health care.

  • Discuss current assessments, management techniques, and treatment recommendations available for different geriatric conditions and for those with serious illness at any stage of disease.
  • Identify patient-centered and system-wide strategies designed to improve quality of care and reduce iatrogenic events.
  • Distinguish differences in care guidelines for older vs younger patients.
  • Recognize the role of social determinants of health and how they can impact care and decision-making.
