Grand Rounds

Calendar of online rounds: http://calendarwiz.com/bcrounds.

Distributed Academic Rounds is a joint service offered through UBC CPD and MedIT to improve UBC clinical faculty and community physician access to academic rounds in BC. Distributed Academic Rounds has a shared calendar showing rounds events of all participating departments and allows you to access rounds through any computer, laptop, iPad or other device with an internet connection through the VC Anywhere program. If your department is taking part in this project you will find information on how to access these rounds through your departmental website (see below for links). If you are a Rounds Coordinator looking for help on how to set up the Distributed Academic Rounds please click here.
