Pediatric Grand Rounds

One way Children’s Hospital & Medical Center offers continuing professional education opportunities for physicians, students, residents, and other medical professionals is through pediatric Grand Rounds — weekly presentations on various issues in pediatric care, such as research reviews, case studies, or recent advances in treating a particular illness.

Pediatric Grand Rounds is presented live each Friday from 8-9 a.m. central time.  All presentations will be offered by Zoom until further notice.  In-person viewing is closed.  Contact to request the Zoom details.   

Please note: scheduling for Grand Rounds typically books up 6-9 months in advance.  Details are published when CME has been approved.  For available future dates, obtaining credit for past presentations or other questions, please contact a CME Coordinator at
