Pediatric Grand Rounds

Auditorium with a screen and chairs.

Each Wednesday, the Department of Pediatrics offers learning opportunities for pediatric professionals throughout the community - both inside and outside the University.

Pediatric Grand Rounds is designed to improve the broad practice of pediatric medicine, including patient care, healthcare research, medical education, public health, and innovation.

Grand Rounds sessions are open to the public, and most presentation materials are posted here for review. CME credits are available to those who attend in-person or listen online.

Below is a list of upcoming Pediatric Grand Rounds sessions.


Our pediatric grand rounds series transitioned to a virtual platform on March 18th to allow our grand rounds attendees to learn and participate from any location.  We are not holding any in person grand rounds currently, but look forward to learning alongside you virtually every Wednesday morning!
