November 13, 2023

The Yale Child Study Center (YCSC) Grand Rounds Committee is pleased provide a sneak peek of some of the distinguished speakers planned for the departmental Grand Rounds series in the upcoming spring semester.

Resuming on January 9, 2024 with a traditional “State of the Department” update from the department chair, this seminar-style series will continue to be presented live from the YCSC Cohen Auditorium most Tuesdays at 1:00 p.m, while also live streamed via Zoom.

A weekly forum for YCSC faculty, staff, and affiliates, these sessions offer multidisciplinary opportunities to come together and learn about a variety of topics relevant to the mental health of children, adolescents, families, and communities. YCSC Grand Rounds are the oldest series exclusively dedicated to topics in child psychiatry and allied disciplines.
