You’ve probably seen it on a medical show! Grand Rounds – a big name for an important presentation. Grand Rounds are often employed in teaching hospitals and involve real-life cases being presented to a group of doctors and doctors-in-training. The presenter paints a picture of a patient’s symptoms, conditions, and treatments, and the audience can provide commentary and ask questions. Oftentimes the patient is even present!
If you envision yourself in medical school one day, this is the perfect class for you. Explore fascinating cases, question the “presenter,” become a mock patient to see a case from every perspective. A challenging and rewarding program is waiting for you this fall! Best of all? You don’t even need to leave your home.
November 29 – December 22
Tuesdays & Thursdays
7:30-9:90 pm EST on Zoom
(Days of the week or times might change slightly while we finalize the teaching team, but it will fall within this timeframe!)
What types of activities will you do?
– Present a patient and their case to the class and ask for diagnoses.
– Participate in the audience, asking intelligent questions and providing observations on patient care and treatment.
– Become a mock patient, describing symptoms to the group.
– Explore rotations such as Neuro, Pediatrics, Cardiology, Internal Medicine, and more!
We’re recruiting some of our past teachers to lead this program! It will likely be led by a team of medical students. Stay tuned to hear about the final lineup!
