Kickoff presentation featuring NYC Dermatologist Dr. Morris Westfried about Drug Reactions.

The goal of the Grand Rounds Lecture Series is to get the pre-clinical student body familiar with the types of discussions you will be expected to actively participate in starting with 3rd year rotations and lasting throughout your career.

Grand Rounds Lecture will be a monthly event starting with the 2016-17 school year and it is highly recommended that you attend regularly. 

PLEASE ATTEND - educate yourself and enjoy a sandwich from Milk and Honey - our treat!

Grand Rounds Series is an exciting Dean’s initiative and we cannot wait to get it started here at TouroCOM. We hope you will join us!
