The faculty of the Division of General Internal Medicine in the Weill Department of Medicine seeks continuous learning of biomedical, clinical, health care delivery, and social and behavioral sciences, and the application of this knowledge as it is applied across the spectrum of patient care. Practice gaps are identified in real time by the Grand Rounds advisory committee, which consists of inpatient, outpatient, and research members, to provide broad representation of the various interests within the Division of General Internal Medicine. As new ideas, drugs, procedures, and policies are identified, DGIM will serve as a resource through this venue to the community at large with high quality speakers and thought-leaders. The ultimate goal is to add to practice-based learning and improvement, including but not limited to investigation and evaluation of patient care practices and appraisal and assimilation of a broad array of scientific and evidence-based practices, all towards improving patient care.
There is a national mandate that academic institutions demonstrate that faculty members are accomplished in the application of principles and practices of patient safety and healthcare delivery, and be able to report that they are proficient in advanced learning in their field. As such, faculty members, students, Ph.D.s, and N.P.s will be involved in interactive learning through this series to gain knowledge on various topics that include but are not limited to the design and delivery of patient safety programs, as well as many other epidemiological, social, behavioral, clinical, and biomedical education topics and their dissemination throughout the organization.
This Grand Rounds program continues to reach out to thought-leaders that are local, regional, and national experts in their fields, to bring their knowledge and expertise to our institution. The aim is to achieve a higher standard of learning within our department by developing faculty members into effective leaders in clinical excellence through evidence-based learning.
Grand Rounds take place from 12-1 P.M.
