OB/GYN Grand Rounds support participants in identifying critical and timely issues that are in need of further attention; offer the appropriate expert education; and discussing how women’s health issues are changing and how best to adapt to those changes.

Upon completion of this OB/GYN activity, participants should be able to:

  • Discuss recent advances in medicine related to various disease states.
  • Incorporate new technologies and medicine into their practice when appropriate.
  • Outcomes: Providers will have increased knowledge about emerging trends in medicine and will apply this information in their practice to maintain competency and improve patient outcomes.
