Grand Rounds

Grand Rounds lectures are a tradition and integral component of medical education. Given by experts, these lectures are research presentations that focus on current or interesting cases. They are also often utilized for dissemination of new research information.

The OSUCCC – James Grand Rounds schedule follows The Ohio State University’s academic calendar. The lectures take place on Friday mornings at 8 a.m. in The James, Room L035  (Wasserstrom Family Conference Room on the conference level), but they are not held on the second Friday of the month, during the summer academic break, or during most weeks that contain a university-sanctioned holiday.
