Grand Rounds is an essential educational event and long-standing tradition in the health care industry. The event is designed to facilitate an environment of learning and growth among health care providers, and we are thrilled to bring it back in collaboration with Wright State University (WSU). During the pandemic, many health care events shifted to virtual platforms, but Grand Rounds is an event that is best experienced in person. We are excited to provide health care providers with the opportunity to attend the event in person. For providers working on other campuses, a Live TEAMS invite will allow virtual participation.

Our primary objective in bringing back Grand Rounds is to facilitate a learning environment. Health care providers need ongoing education and training to stay current on the latest medical advancements, treatments, and technologies. Grand Rounds offers an ideal platform for experts in the health care industry to share their knowledge and expertise on various topics related to patient care, research, and innovation. By attending Grand Rounds, providers can gain valuable insights and knowledge to improve their clinical practice, patient care, and outcomes.

Another objective for resuming Grand Rounds is strengthening the collaboration between Wright State University and Premier Health. The health care industry is constantly evolving, and it is essential for health care organizations to work together to deliver the best patient care. By collaborating with WSU, we can leverage their expertise and resources to enhance the quality of care we provide to our patients. Additionally, we hope to foster a collaborative culture of learning and growth among health care providers through this event.

Improving provider engagement is another critical objective of bringing back Grand Rounds. We believe in-person attendance will help providers engage with their peers, participate in interactive discussions, and learn from each other's experiences. We understand that the industry can be stressful, and attending Grand Rounds can be a great way for providers to unwind and connect with their colleagues.

To ensure maximum participation, the event will take place quarterly on Thursdays at noon. This timing is convenient for providers to attend and will allow for flexibility in their schedules. Our goal is to move to monthly events in the future to offer more opportunities for learning and engagement. This event is for all providers across Premier Health and Wright State, including physicians, APPs, and residents. We will provide lunch to all attendees for initial meetings and offer CME credits for both in-person and virtual attendees.

Our planning committee is working hard to select timely topics that are relevant and impactful. We are confident that the first session scheduled for June 8 will be engaging and informative. The session will cover Candida auris, an emerging infection that could be a global health threat, as well as updates on PCN allergy by Steven Burdette, MD. This session will cover the latest developments in these areas and provide attendees with valuable insights that they can apply to their clinical practice.
