Grand Rounds

BCCDC Grand Rounds are a forum for state-of-the-art research or review provided by faculty or invited lecturers.

These rounds are broadcast throughout the province using our webinar functions. This is a College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada CME accredited activity.

If you would like to be added to the email distribution list to be informed about new Grand Rounds sessions, please email Cletus Dsouza at

The BCCDC presents public health rounds to encourage new ways of thinking, introduce new or update older ideas and to generate discussion and in some cases debate around important public health issues. 

The views of the presenters are not necessarily those of the BCCDC nor do they necessarily represent BCCDC policy. The official BCCDC policy on an issue can be found on the BCCDC website: or by contacting the BCCDC at
