Physician Relations Grand Rounds


Sharing Great Ideas

Physician Relations Grand Rounds is a monthly presentation series for MD Anderson faculty, staff, and referring physicians. The program's goal is to highlight thought leaders on topics relevant to physicians and scientists with a particular focus on physician to physician professional relationships and their impact on continuity of care, patient safety, referral development, clinical research activities and hospital operations.
