Cedars-Sinai International Events

Global Healthcare Grand Rounds

In these interactive events, global leaders are invited to share their perspectives, experience and knowledge on topics related to international healthcare delivery, patient experience, quality and process improvement, global collaborations and health system development. Target audiences are clinicians, administrators and executives at Cedars-Sinai and its partnering organizations who are interested in learning about advances in global healthcare and the implications for patient care.

Healthcare Diplomacy

It brings together the healthcare professionals, business leaders and policy makers from all over the world to discuss U.S. bilateral relations, as well as the risks and opportunities coming along. The goal is to take healthcare as a communication conduit and develop and enhance the collaborations among different organizations and countries.
