Departmental Grand Rounds are currently held on the first Friday Morning of each month via video conference due to the pandemic. The format of Grand Rounds is the presentation of interesting, rare and challenging cases by the residents with expert feedback from a visiting lecturer to the Houston Ophthalmological Society who is a nationally known expert in their field. These presentations foster informative discussions with the faculty, residents, and guests. Houston area ophthalmologists and physicians are welcome and encouraged to attend Grand Rounds, which are held from September through May.

The format of case conference is the presentation of interesting and clinically relevant cases by our residents to encourage critical thinking for the development of differential diagnosis and formulation of optimal patient care plans with feedback from residents and faculty alike.
