Medical Pharmacology and Physiology seminars are held 12-1 p.m. Tuesdays.

For the Fall 2021 semester, seminars will be either in-person or via Zoom but not both.

In-person seminars will be held in Acuff Auditorium, MA217 Medical Science Building.

School of Medicine building access information – Seminar attendees from outside the School of Medicine may enter the SOM through doors marked “only staff and employees allowed.” For future in-person seminars, we plan to have someone at the Patient-Centered Care Learning Center (PCCLC) doors from 11:50am to 12:00pm, in order to assist those without SOM ID badge access into the building. If you have questions, please contact Lisa Putting.

Faculty and staff may request SOM access be added to their ID badges by filling out the Electronic Badge Reader Access Request Form. The specific doors to request access to are the SOM Atrium doors and/or the PCCLC doors. Processing takes 24-48 hours, older ID badges may not work.

Links to Zoom-only meetings will be added as they are set. If you do not see a link to a Zoom-only seminar you wish to attend, please contact Lisa Putting.
