Grand Rounds

Pathology Grand Rounds

The wonderful tradition of Grand Rounds is thriving here at Hopkins. The Department gathers each Monday at 8:30 am to learn from each other and to exchange ideas. We host a lively series of speakers, including thought leaders from the department, from the broader Johns Hopkins community, and from beyond the walls of Hopkins. Each event consists of a short topic speaker (typically a resident, fellow or pathobiology student) followed by a cutting-edge lecture by an invited speaker of national repute in basic science or in clinical/anatomic pathology. The 50-minute presentation is followed by a Q&A session.

This activity is intended for Pathology Faculty and Housestaff.
CME credit awarded only to JH Faculty and Housestaff who attend the presentations live.

Schedule: Mondays from 8:30am - 9:30am by zoom
