One of the most challenging issues that world is facing is that of refugee crisis and yet we do not talk about the impact of refugee crisis on healthcare.

Residents and faculty currently are unable to participate in grand rounds held by other departments due to time constraints and topics are not applicable to primary care practice. The goal of this activity is to meet the needs of our residents (scholarly activity), faculty and involve community physicians to discuss and present what is relevant to primary care and gain experience about latest trends that are applicable to day-to-day practice. This activity will give the opportunity to residents, faculty and community physicians to have a forum for information exchange and disseminate their research. Grand Rounds at UTSW will allow community physicians to earn their CME credits to meet the requirements of ABFM and TMB. We will have experts available as panelists for discussion to fill in the gaps where guidelines are not clear.


Target Audience

UT Southwestern faculty, fellows, residents and medical students, community physicians, and other interested health care professionals at UTSW.
