Introducing Medicine Grand Rounds on Louisville Lectures

We are excited to announce an addition to the current offerings we have on Louisville Lectures: Medicine Grand Rounds.  Building on our current Internal Medicine Lecture Series from the University of Louisville, we will be adding a separate category for Grand Rounds lectures. The Grand Rounds lecture series at the University of Louisville runs from September to June and is only one lecture per week, so we will not be publishing these lectures each and every week simply due to availability. Because the content discussed in a Grand Rounds lecture is often a deep dive into a topic, research based, and not always a good fit into a general medicine curriculum, we are offering these as a separate entity within Louisville Lectures. You should see a new category in the navigation appearing soon, and as we publish more, a separate playlist on YouTube.

The lectures that do fit well into the medicine curriculum we are building will be published into our Internal Medicine Lecture Series categories and podcast as well.  Finally, we want to thank all the faculty that have contributed their knowledge, time, and expertise to the program. We are excited about some of our debut lectures and hope you enjoy these offerings as much as we have.
