Coronavirus Update: What patients and families need to know

Hospital Grand Rounds

Join the Children’s National Community at Hospital Grand Rounds!

One way Children’s National Hospital 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. 

COVID-19 Grand Rounds Update

Due to concerns about the COVID-19 infection, education leadership has decided that the Children’s National Grand Rounds series will move to a modified Zoom-only format. The goal of this change is to keep staff and visitors safe and avoid any unnecessary exposures to large groups here at work. Thank you for your understanding! View our grand rounds related to COVID-19.

Zoom Tip: When logging into zoom meetings, remote staff are encouraged to log off of VPN before connecting to Zoom or to join Zoom meetings via phone. This improves audio and visual connectivity as we adjust network policies/traffic to enable Children’s National to scale to about 7,000.
