Pediatric Grand Rounds
Pediatric Grand Rounds started in 1964 with the goal of enhancing diagnostic, clinical and treatment skills, to include best-practice and evidence-based medical information and education. The goal of the series is not only to teach, but to actively engage participants.
Our presentations are targeted toward pediatric physicians, nurses, other health care providers and community members who care for children.
Sample Topics Include
- Current nationwide health concerns - Zika virus, sports concussions, and obesity
- Multidisciplinary conditions - autism, craniofacial malformations, and pain management
- Pediatric mental health topics – suicide risk screening, human trafficking and neuropsychology
- Clinicopathologic Cases – hypercalcemia, neutropenia, and failure to thrive
Series Learning Objectives
It is our hope that participation in VCU Pediatric Grand Rounds will enable the participant to provide better patient care through an increased ability to:
- Effectively apply current diagnostic, therapeutic, clinical and pharmaceutical techniques
- Discuss and consider the incorporation of newer research and case evidence into best practice medicine
- Describe new procedures and enhance current skills through case discussion
Individual learning objectives are provided at each event.
Grand Rounds are given by Virginia Commonwealth University faculty members, and both local and regional guest speakers.
Location and Time
Live Grand Rounds presentations occur on Tuesday afternoons beginning the 2nd Tuesday of September through mid-May. All presentations are from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. in the VCU Children’s Pavilion, room 5-086.
