The Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior at UCLA is pleased to present Semel Institute Grand Rounds, our weekly educational conference featuring presentations on evidence-based clinical practices, cutting-edge insights from neuroscience, and the role of society in shaping mental health.

Covid-19: In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, Semel Institute Grand Rounds will be held via Zoom webinar for the foreseeable future. Please see our Calendar of Events page for upcoming presentations. Use the link associated with each event to register in advance of the talk. Information on how to join the webinar will then be emailed to you.

CME Certificates: CME certificates for our Grand Rounds are issued by the Office of Continuing Medical Education at the UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine. To claim CME credit, please register for and attend the presentation via Zoom webinar. Following the presentation, you will be directed to a survey. Complete this survey to claim your credit. Please note that certificates for the entire calendar year are sent out in early spring of the following year (so credits from 2020 will not be sent out until early 2021).
