With COVID-19 likely to be part of the clinical landscape for the foreseeable future, the California Health and Human Services Agency (CHHS) and the California Medical Association (CMA), in partnership with the California Academy of Physician Assistants (CAPA) and Osteopathic Physicians and Surgeons of California (OPSC), are hosting a monthly Virtual Grand Rounds series on the evolution of the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) and management of COVID-19 patients.
The first Virtual Grand Rounds – State of COVID-19 with California Public Health Leaders – will be Tuesday, July 14, 2020, at 12 p.m. The 90-minute grand rounds webinars are free and open to all interested clinicians. Clinicians likely to encounter COVID-19 in their practice settings (e.g., front line physicians, nurse practitioners or physician assistants) are encouraged to join the monthly case-based presentations, which will include expert panel discussions and audience participation.

- Mark Ghaly, M.D., CHHS Secretary
- Alice Chen, M.D., MPH, Deputy Secretary for Policy and Planning and Director of Clinical Affairs, CHHS
