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.

Have an idea for a presentation?

We are 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 our 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 is appropriate for the Grand Rounds format and for a 12-minute presentation, we will contact you for additional information.

Wish to Participate in a Live Session?

We’d love to have your team join other teams during our live, online Grand Rounds events. The topic and time of a live Grand Rounds will appear on this page 30 days prior to the event, and you must register your participating team. You will be asked to provide contact information and attest to meeting the requirements for participation.
