The Basic Science Course & Med 256: Immunological Basis of Rheumatic and Allergic Diseases Journal Club is presented as a part of the Grand Rounds.

Objectives:

 

  • To provide an overview of cutting edge topics in the field of rheumatology, allergy and immunology 
  • To offer health science education programs in formats and venues conducive to learning. 
  • To enable physicians to remain informed in multiple areas of medicine including development in fields other than their own. 
  • To foster responsible and balanced debate on conventional and controversial issues affecting health sciences. 
The University of California, San Diego School of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to sponsor continuing medical education for physicians.
