Grand Rounds, Thursdays, weekly from 8:00-9:00 am

Meltzer Auditorium (simulcast to Karp 11 conference room at Children’s Hospital Boston and the conference room at 800 Huntington at the MEEI Longwood location)
Course Directors: Drs. Joan Miller, Simmons Lessell, Joseph Rizzo, Yewlin Chee
Considered the Department’s most important meeting series, Grand Rounds is an opportunity to unite research, education and clinical care in a collaborative, interactive forum that promotes involvement and inspiration. Meetings are typically conducted in the format of clinical case presentations given by residents and fellows. Participation from clinicians, scientists, trainees, nursing staff, and social workers is encouraged to allow for rich discussion on clinical cases from multiple perspectives.

While open to visitors, the target audience is primarily ophthalmology residents, fellows and faculty. Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to integrate state of the art diagnostic criteria and treatment for a variety of ophthalmic disorders in the care of their patients, and utilize evidence-based interventions in patient treatment.

Continuing Medical Education credit is available. The Harvard Medical School is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians. The Harvard Medical School designates this live activity for a maximum of 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to recognize and diagnose rare retinal diseases or atypical presentations of more common retinal diseases; treat or initiate treatment of these conditions; be aware of the most recent advances in the diagnosis, treatment, and science of retinal diseases, and recognize pathophysiology of retinal diseases.
