Asynchronous Learning

Medical Education Grand Rounds (MEGR) previously occurred monthly in Faculty Development from 2017-2020. Sessions involved either a discussion around a medical education article of interest or a presentation of current research followed by discussion. While the focus is medical education, these sessions were open to all and the topics were usually applicable to other areas of health science education or education in general.
