Grand Rounds

MSTP Ground Rounds is a monthly case-based small group style discussion of a clinical problem and relevant state-of-the-art science. For each session, a MSTP students in the second year of the graduate phase will work with their MSTP Clinical Continuity mentor to select a case that highlights the particular clinical problem and develop a “Morbidity and Mortality” style presentation of the case. Following the case presentation, the student and faculty guru will lead the group in an interactive grand rounds style presentation of the current science aimed at understanding the highlighted clinical problem.

Specific objectives of MSTP Grand Rounds include:

  • To highlight the impact of basic, translational and epidemiological research on prevention, detection and treatment of human disease
  • To provide an opportunity for students to network with established University of Minnesota physician scientists in a field of interest
  • To provide a regular venue for interaction among students, residents, fellows, and faculty interested in the application of basic research to clinical medicine

MSTP Grand Rounds is open to all University of Minnesota MSTP students, MD students, medical residents, medical fellows, and faculty.
