Rheumatology Grand Rounds

All conferences (including Orthopedics-Rehab) will be held at the Altman Clinical and Translational Research Institute (ACTRI), 3W 232 conference room from 8:00 AM to 9:00 AM by either a rheumatology faculty member or visiting scholar unless otherwise indicated. Radiology conferences will be held at the Veteran's Administration Radiology Front Conference Room. Focus is directed at the broad scope of divisional research and clinical activities. The Basic Science Course & Med 256: Immunological Basis of Rheumatic and Allergic Diseases Journal Club is presented as a part of the Grand Rounds.

Objectives:

  • To provide an overview of cutting edge topics in the field of rheumatology, allergy and immunology 
  • To offer health science education programs in formats and venues conducive to learning. 
  • To enable physicians to remain informed in multiple areas of medicine including development in fields other than their own. 
  • To foster responsible and balanced debate on conventional and controversial issues affecting health sciences. 
The University of California, San Diego School of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to sponsor continuing medical education for physicians.
The University of California, San Diego School of Medicine designates this educational activity for one credit per hour in Category 1 credit toward the AMA Physicians Recognition Award. Each physician should claim only those credits that he/she actually spent in the activity.
