Grand Rounds

Psychiatry Grand Rounds lectures are presented on Fridays from 11 a.m. to noon during the academic year (September through June). The schedule posted lists dates, speakers, and the general topics. Titles and learning objectives for each lecture will be available approximately one week beforehand.

CME credit is only available to UConn Health or UConn Health-affiliated faculty and staff who meet the following criteria:

  1. View the webcast live.
  2. Send an email to psychgr@uchc.edu during the live webcast indicating their attendance.
  3. Complete an online evaluation distributed by the UConn Health CME office.
