More Information About Pediatrics Grand Rounds

The primary objective of Grand Rounds is to cover the needs of practicing pediatricians and attending faculty. Pediatric Grand Rounds offers formal 45-minute lecture presentations on a broad variety of current issues in the area of health care for children. Through this media, Grand Rounds provide:

  • Information for community practitioners and attendings to modify their health care practices, so that they may learn about general and specialized current up-to-date care for children and their families
  • Presentations on research issues in the area of general and specialized pediatrics, so that faculty and community practitioners will have an understanding of significant new issues in the area of pediatric research
  • A forum for information exchange
  • Opportunities to hear national speakers who devote a conference specifically to community physicians

Attendance is approximately 80-100 persons, including faculty and resident physicians, medical students, nurses, allied health professionals, students and community physicians. Our scheduling goal is to present balanced topics covering general as well as specific pediatric health care.

Participants desiring Continuing Medical Education credit are asked to sign in and then complete an online survey sent after the presentation to an email address they provide.  The surveys are compiled and results and comments are recorded and the information is made available to the speaker.  Recommendations for future speakers and/or topics are also recorded from these Surveys, which help determine future Grand Rounds presentation topics and speakers.
