Why Rural PREP Grand Rounds?

Engaging clinical learners and faculty in scholarly interactions is a challenge for any training program. Rural PREP Grand Rounds provide an opportunity for learners and faculty to hear from experts and discuss timely rural health and rural primary care issues. Rural PREP Grand Rounds bring experts on rural health into your teaching round setting.

What is Rural PREP Grand Rounds?

Rural PREP Grand Rounds are short, 1-hour team-based learning (TBL) sessions that engage learners and faculty from multiple disciplines at various stages of their professional development. The Grand Rounds process engages teams from rural sites across the US in an online event that is both a presentation of a rural health topic and an active learning session. The live version occurs up to eight times yearly (in August, September, October, November, January, February, March, and April) with a different featured program presenter each month. Select sessions are available in the Rural PREP Resource Library so that rural health professions training programs can use them on their own time and in their own place.

Have an idea for a presentation?

The Rural PREP team is continuously recruiting presenters on a variety of topics relevant to rural health and practice through an open request for proposals. Anyone engaged in rural practice or in rural health professions education— student, faculty, resident, or other— can submit a topic and the team will work with you to prepare a presentation. You can even nominate a peer or another individual. If you have an idea for a 12-minute presentation relevant to rural health, fill out the short form on our submission page. If the idea you submit seems appropriate for the TBL format and for a 12-minute presentation, the team will contact you for additional information.

Wish to Participate in a Live Session?

Generally, the topic and time of a live session will appear on this page 30 days prior to the event and you will be able to register as a participating site. You are not able to participate as an individual and must register as a team. You will be asked to furnish contact information and attest to meeting the requirements for participation.
