PT Rounds

Pharmacotherapy Rounds – Austin/Temple/RGV

Pharmacotherapy Rounds (PT Rounds) presentation topics focus on a clinical controversy or an emerging issue—the purpose of this seminar is to disseminate up-to-date clinical information at the post-graduate level. Presentations are in-depth and reflect the presenter’s ability to integrate opposing views and apparently conflicting information, and to develop and clearly articulate his/her own conclusion(s). Participation in PT Rounds is determined by each program’s Residency Program Director, but is highly encouraged by the College. It is an opportunity for formative feedback to each resident that participates.

At the completion of this conference series, the resident will demonstrate proficiency in the delivery of a formal verbal presentation including the development of a handout and the effective use of visual aids. A secondary objective of this conference series is to provide a regularly scheduled forum for the sharing of ideas and information relating to clinical practice, education, research, and other program- or profession-related issues.

2019-20 Presentation Schedule

All presentations occur in room PHR 4.114 except where otherwise noted.
