UTHealth Houston Psychiatry Grand Rounds

Grand Rounds are held weekly on Wednesdays at 12pm central time. The purpose of grand rounds is to to analyze current practice patterns, stay informed about emerging clinical research, and adhere to evidence-based practice guidelines. This is important to ensure that clinical practices are up-to-date, effective, and safe for patients. Once the information is analyzed and translated, it can be applied to clinical practice to improve patient outcomes.
