UCI Urology Grandest Rounds is a uniquely global experience due to the introduction of the ZOOM lectureships in 2017. Presently, by expanding ZOOM lectureships to include those coming from experts throughout North America as well as from our own UCI faculty, fellows and residents, we are able to provide a complete Grand Rounds experience for all participants. Also by introducing the KAHOOT! app we have been able to promote a lively discussion with the lecturer following each lecture. In addition to the lectures, we have also been able to include challenging case presentations. Also this year we have introduced a new feature: “Life’s Legends Lectures” which will be given during those months when there is a 5th Monday; these lectures will focus on aspects of career, life balance, and discovery as experienced by some of our most well known urologists.

The UCI Urology ZOOM Grandest Rounds are novel in that each month is dedicated to one of 12 major topics in Urology. During that month, all lectures as well as case presentations are focused on the topic of the month. As such, you can match your interests with the grand rounds’ topic of the month.

In the 2020-2021 academic year, we have been able to secure lectures by some of the most expert and respected urologists in the country covering a variety of topics. Among the 2020-2021, ZOOM lecturers are: Patrick Walsh (Johns Hopkins), Peter Carroll (UCSF), Marston Linehan (National Cancer Institute), Jay Smith (Vanderbilt), John Barry (Oregon Health Sciences University), and Linda Baker (UT Southwestern).

We invite you to join colleagues from more than 20 states and 29 countries to become an attendee at our ZOOM rounds. You can do this by connecting to our site from the comfort of your home, office, or mobile device anywhere in the world. A complete listing of all Grand Rounds’ topics and lecturers for the 2020-2021 academic year can be obtained here:
