Pediatric Grand Rounds

Pediatric Grand Rounds is a series of one-hour lectures and case presentations for pediatric physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, residents and medical students. Topics are geared towards both general pediatricians and pediatric subspecialists.

We invite local and national speakers to present at these conferences, which typically occur twice monthly at 7:30 a.m. at Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas.

One hour of CME credit is awarded for each presentation and Ethics credits are offered approximately two times per year. Please email us to be added to the Pediatric Grand Rounds email list.

All Grand Rounds presentations are held in the Signe Auditorium at Dell Children’s. Parking is available in the main visitor parking lot, and the auditorium is just inside the Pat Hays Education Center Entrance, which is to the left of the Main Entrance.
