Using conduit to ground a romex leg

I have installed all new conduit to all the interior walls of a remodeled cinderblock cottage in michigan. The code allows me to use romex but opted to use conduit on the interior walls. The outside cinderblock walls have original outlets with romex, which iam replacing with new boxes,outlets and romex. I want to tie in the romex outlets to the conduit wiring at junction boxes. My question is.. can I use the new conduit as my ground back to the panel or do i have to run a seperate ground back to the panel for all 10 of the outlets that i around the outside walls??
Thanks Dave Help!!!!

If the conduit is continuous back to the panel the NM can be grounded to the box.
