Grand Rounds

The Institute for Global Health (IGHS) Grand Rounds showcases the linkage between education and research by bringing together students and researchers to discuss scientific advances in a range of fields and their implications for global health. 

IGHS Executive Director Jaime Sepulveda, MD, DSc, MPH, hosts the monthly, hour-long programs, which feature a 30-minute talk by the guest speaker followed by questions from Sepulveda, an IGHS graduate student and audience members. Unless otherwise noted, Grand Rounds are held in Mission Hall.
