Typically held the 1st, 3rd & 4th Tuesdays of each month

Noon to 1pm, 8B60, 8th Floor, OHSU Hospital (unless otherwise noted)

Psychiatry Grand Rounds provides continuing medical education for the target audience. We strive to enable discussion that is both about and involves the patient so the physician can better understand the depth of one's mental illness. In Grand Rounds we explore the history of certain policies and procedures in place for handling mentally ill patients and what can happen to improve care and treatment that they receive, as well as to better explain and expand on various forms of mental illness and how treatment should be approached and practiced by the clinician.
