Mission: To provide Family Physicians and other primary care providers in South Texas and beyond with up-to date information about evidence-based and patient-center care they can use to prevent disease and improve the care they deliver to their individual patients, families and communities.

Target Audience: We welcome faculty, residents, other health care providers and staff from our department; physicians and health care providers from San Antonio and South Texas; and medical students in our third year clerkship and fourth year rotations.

Expected Outcomes: We expect that participating in our Grand Rounds will improve the medical care participants provide by integrating evidence-based content and quality improvement strategies. We emphasis the assessment of outcomes, such as performance improvement in practice and point of care learning, which incorporates documented application of new knowledge into practice.
