Psychiatric Grand Rounds

2020 Psychiatric Grand Rounds Schedule

Beginning in 2020, Psychiatric Grand Rounds will change to the 4th Tuesdays of the month, except for the months of February, May and July when it will be the 2nd Tuesday of those months.

Cottage Health Department of Psychiatric and Addiction Medicine seeks to promote excellence and quality in our clinical care, introduce clinicians to recent advances that enhance treatment and provide a forum for discussion of topics that strengthen the relationship of psychiatry and addiction medicine to the broader Santa Barbara community.
