What is Rural PREP Grand Rounds?

Rural PREP Grand Rounds is a service of Rural PREP – assisting in the packaging of presentations into team-based learning (TBL) sessions relevant to rural health and rural primary care practice and designed for learners from multiple professions at various stages of their professional development. The Grand Rounds process engages teams in an online event that is both a presentation of a rural health topic and an active learning session. It is “grand” in that the live activity engages rural sites from across the US. It is also “grand” because, even if used asynchronously as a TBL package, Rural PREP Grand Rounds brings an expert from outside your own institution into your teaching rounds setting.

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. The best of these are packaged and placed on our Resource Library page and our archives below in a way that rural health professions training programs can use 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 faculty person! 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 will be asked to furnish contact information and attest to meeting the requirements for participation.
