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. at Children’s in the Glow Auditorium on the 3rd floor. Each program is made available to view via our intranet link. CME credit is approved for one year from the date of the presentation. Archived presentations may be viewed for content, but credit is not offered.

Recordings of Grand Rounds presentations are available for online viewing (below).
