Psychosocial Spiritual Grand Rounds is an interdisciplinary gathering that discusses topics related to Spirituality and Medicine, as well as how a patient’s health is impacted by psychological, social, and spiritual needs.  It is offered free of charge for UAB Hospital employees and to the public.

Psychosocial Spiritual Grand Rounds is offered at UAB on the second Tuesday of every other month beginning in January from 12-1 pm.
