The UCSF Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences Grand Rounds series (course number MGR22074) seeks to promote excellence and quality in clinical care; introduce clinicians to recent advances in medical care; provide updates on scientific advances that affect the practice of medicine; and provide a forum for discussion of topics that strengthen the relationship of psychiatry to the broader community.

Events are held on Tuesday mornings from 8:30–9:30 a.m. PST/PDT. All events will be held online via Zoom for the foreseeable future in accordance with the UCSF Interim Policy on Large Events and Gatherings. There is no charge to attend these events, but advance registration is required to receive the necessary Zoom connection information. A schedule of upcoming events and videos of previous talks are available below.

UCSF Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences Grand Rounds presentations are for educational purposes and intended only for behavioral/mental health professionals and clinical providers. Continuing education (CE) credit is available for physicians, psychologists, nurses, and therapists (LCSWs, LEPs, LMFTs, and LPCCs) who participate in this activity.
