Covid Calls

Vaccine Scheduling Update: We’re experiencing very high call volumes from people interested in getting the COVID-19 vaccine. Currently, our vaccine supply is very small, and we are unable to accept phone calls to schedule vaccine appointments. Please check back here for updates.

Penn Radiology offers virtual Grand Rounds sessions twice a month from January to December, typically scheduled from 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm. Members of our faculty invite presenters based on their expertise and prominence in their field and to complement our residency program. Our 2021 series includes a new component showcasing “Distinguished Lecturers” to enhance our program. In addition, internal sessions are included to allow our trainees to present to our faculty before participating in international conferences. The sessions are also an opportunity for our residents to showcase their research projects.

The schedule below is regularly updated as guest speakers are confirmed.
