Cardiology Grand Rounds strives to provide topical lectures with emphasis on latest techniques and advancements in the practice of Cardiovascular Disease. This is accomplished by presentations from our own Cardiology Faculty and nationally known visiting professors from premier academic medical centers throughout the United States. While the lectures are geared to our own Cardiology Faculty and Fellows in training, we welcome those who have special interests in any topics presented. Residents and nursing staff with career interests in cardiology are encouraged to attend as well as non-cardiology faculty with special interests in a particular topic presented. We enthusiastically extend an open invitation to our community cardiology physicians to attend any or all of our lectures. You can view all previously recorded presentations and talks via this playlist:

Cardiology Research Conference

When: Mondays (September – May) 12–1pm
Host Location: UCD Academic Office 1, Board Room 7000
Teleconference Locations: DHMC-Cardiology Conference Room VAMC-Cardiology Conference Room

Cardiology Research Conference offers a forum where ongoing investigational research can be presented to provide the faculty and fellows-in-training with a better understanding of the research within our division and opportunities for new research and collaborative research efforts between our sites of practice. Bench research work presented especially provides the fellows in training with an excellent overview of opportunities for in depth work that can inspire new research career pathways. Presentations mainly focus on our own key research areas but other researchers with projects relative to cardiology also serve as invited speakers. Our own fellows in training with dedicated time in research present their ongoing work for review and suggestions by faculty for continuation and progress of their work.

The S. Blount Cardiology Lectureship

The Blount Lectureship was established in 1982 under the direction of Dr. Lawrence Horwitz in honor Dr. S. Gilbert Blount, Jr. for his outstanding contributions to education, clinical excellence, and development of the Division of Cardiology. The UCDSOM Division of Cardiology was founded by Dr. Blount where he served as Division Head until his retirement. This lectureship continues on today to provide a forum for nationally acclaimed visiting physicians to provide a valued educational experience with lectures and small group meetings to exchange ideas with our own faculty and fellows in training in cardiovascular disease.​
