Medicine Grand Rounds

Medicine Grand Rounds (MGR) is a weekly topic- and case-based presentation by members of the faculty of the Department of Medicine (and colleagues in the School of Medicine). Topics and cases are selected to provide faculty and trainees with up-to-date knowledge about timely issues in internal medicine.

For the time being (because of COVID-19 restrictions), MGR meets virtually each Friday at 12 p.m. Please do not attend in person.

  • See the schedule of upcoming and past presentations in the table below.
  • Links to Zoom are listed when available. Login with Duke Net ID is usually required.
  • A special series, COVID-19 Clinical Presentations, addressed topics related to COVID-19. Additional topics are planned.

How to attend

Faculty and trainees are asked to register once for the series; you will receive the Zoom virtual conference information in an email. (The email will include a link that is unique to you and cannot be forwarded to others to use.)
