Community Grand Rounds Lecture Series

The Community Grand Rounds lecture series at the Rowan-Virtua School of Osteopathic Medicine explores an array of topics to improve the access to services, medical care and mental health resources for marginalized communities. Topic areas addressed include disparities of care, models of care, diversity in medicine, cultural competency and equity in the delivery of health care services. We seek out experts in various disciplines of health care, including alumni and faculty from SOM and from throughout NJ and national leaders in medicine and medical education.

The Community Grand Rounds lecture series was developed in 2006 by Michael Ruzek, DO ’10 when he was a student leader with the Student National Medical Association (SNMA). Since then, the lecture series has been a successful collaboration of SNMA, the Dean’s Office and the Office of Student Affairs and Alumni Engagement.
