Dear Semel Grand Rounds community,

We are pleased to announce that we plan to transition towards a hybrid model for Semel Grand Rounds beginning in the 2022 calendar year! This means that most Grand Rounds talks will return to being presented in the Semel Auditorium for those who would like to attend in-person, with a Zoom webinar livestream option for those who would prefer to join remotely. 

In-person attendance will follow the protocols outlined in UCLA’s return to campus page. This includes:

  • Face masks: Masking is mandatory at all indoor events of any size. Attendees should also wear masks while waiting in line to enter the venue.
  • Requirements for entry: UCLA students, faculty and staff attending an indoor event must show their Symptom Monitoring Survey clearance certificate for that day to gain entry. Non-affiliates — those attendees who are not members of the UCLA community — must show proof of being fully vaccinated or a negative COVID-19 test within the previous 72 hours.

The same amount of Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit will be available regardless of whether you join in-person or on Zoom. However, we will no longer offer paper evaluation forms for credit, and all forms will need to be submitted through the Qualtrics online survey regardless of if you join in-person or remotely.

We anticipate that there may be a few bumps along the way as we transition to the newer hybrid model, so we very much appreciate your patience and understanding! If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out at Thank you!
